today, advice, and links.

i've been painting today.

now, we're going to see The Help. [i'm still only halfway through the book, but i shall finish it soon.]
i woke up to thunder, and the sound of rain on the windows.
the sun is coming out.
and now, for all you lovelies, i have found a new site!
at the moment, i'm reading
your guidance counselor was wrong: why you don't really have to figure it all out now.
and trying to figure out [in the back of my mind] how and where and the details of the object i'm going to paint on this blue-black background. night sky, but way different than the ones i've done in the past.
i plan to read her top posts.
    don’t take life too seriously… you’ll never get out alive.
-Van Wilder (actually, the original quote is from Elbert Hubbard, but who the heck is Elbert Hubbard? Righttt.)
so . . . i'm going to just link them here to browse.

and . . . i love this: 
Get the ball rolling by asking yourself what makes you feel centered and excited. Sign yourself up for a cooking class or a writing class or start working on those paintings you’ve been wanting to do. It might seem awkward at first, but notice how alive it makes you feel. Just saying.

Loved some of those articles. Doesn't make me feel so bad about what some might thing of my recent "hasty" choice.
