Take a deep breath and blow it out fully, until your chest deflates. Repeat this periodically.

good advice and i love the dash of humor you add with your picture! Everyday objects as art. You would not know of course how often that pattern turns up in my paintings.

Is that a homegrown photo? Are you turning into a shutterbug? :o)

It's a scanned paper towel. Time to branch out and get creative.:-)

I do need to get that camera that's been on my mind for 10 years.

Anyhoo, one of the reasons I wanted to be successful and get it over with was so that I could do what I really want to do which will not have popular appeal. Only for the select few. Popular appeal actually gets less and less appealing to me if that's possible. Popularity is not a good sign, unless it's completely by happenstance.

There's a machine with which I can create my own sounds, called a sampler, and that's been my big plan. Take things around the house and make my own percussive sounds then put them through the keyboard. Those would be fun to record and will require a studio upgrade. It's a good thing we live so long these days.

"Only for the select few. Popular appeal actually gets less and less appealing to me if that's possible."

One of my design teachers used to talk like that. He would say that's very advanced. He knew how to win industry awards, but for him it was been there, done that.

"It's a good thing we live so long these days."

Lots to do. :-) It's going to be a powerful thing.

My sister was saying the other week that it would be a while before she saw a real return on her investment in her new business. I looked at her sidewise and said, "Well...Have you ever really envisioned yourself retiring?" So then she laughed and replied, "No!"

She also told me that her friend and neighbor, a jewelry maker, gave birth to a child with Down syndrome. The neighbor was very grateful to have my sister and her husband living next door, because they are medical people well-accustomed to working with special patient populations, and would be very comfortable relating to the child.

My kind of people, the design teacher.
