As for me, I’ve been thinking that I’m going to start focusing my awareness outward. I’ve been so focused inwardly on my spiritual growth and everything that I’ve shut out the rest of the world to a certain extent. I’m realizing now that I’m not living to the fullest extent if I’m not experiencing the world around me. I think that’s also why I’ve been craving travel for a few weeks now. Of course that doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop my inner growth. I’m just going to try and balance the inner and outward more. Not sure exactly how I’m going to do this yet, but I’ll figure it out. Slowly but surely.
I got quite a bit of work accomplished a couple of nights ago. Put up all my artwork and some pictures that I hadn't hung yet. It's really looking great around here but then again I'm biased since most of the artwork is either my own or stuff I've bought. It makes me happy to see my own art on the walls. One of B's friends actually told me to stop bragging other night when I said there was one in the bedroom they could take a look at if they wanted. *sigh* No wonder so many artists don't share their work! What's wrong with being proud of your work? I do like sharing my art with other people. It's something that I'm actually decent at and it makes me feel good to know that other people enjoy it too. So I'm going to keep painting and dammit I'm going to keep "bragging" too!
In other news, yesterday someone told us that there’d been a polar bear out in the baseball diamond just across the road from us! I’m kind of bummed that I didn’t get to see but glad that it didn’t come over when Toby was outside! I’d be mortified if he got eaten by a polar bear! I’ve been keeping an eye out for them for the past week or so since there have been a few sightings near town. I use the binoculars we own and scan out across what I can see of the land from my bedroom window. My view is pretty limited but maybe I’ll get lucky one of these days. Just as long as it’s at a distance I’m cool… I do not want to be polar bear dinner!
