musings


i don't have many words lately. in a day, i speak very few, write even fewer. i've swung to the far end of my reclusive introvert side. in 2 weeks i've left our place once, because i had to. there are moments when i feel lonely for people, for friends, conversation, but mostly i just want to be alone with my thoughts and myself. what a strange bird i am...

lol Phew! I thought I might be the only strange bird! That's what we can do, sew up some strange birds! I sewed up a crow the other night, but he seems to need something, just like me! LOL I like your collage! I DO LOVE being alone!

I am the same way -- only I think it's normal! Haha!

No, really, I think it's healthy. We need this time with ourselves.

XOXO

Katie, Angie Platten suggested I contact you. She said you had just started doing giclee prints. I'm not sure if she meant you're having them done, or if you have purchased one. I want to start having prints made of my digital art, and if you have any info or suggestions about the giclee process, I'd be very grateful.

BTW, I also like to be alone. I only have to fill up my car about once a month, so I don't go out much either. It may be an artist thing.

hi karen,
i work with a local artist in our area who does prints for herself as well as many other artists in our area. i would suggest going to a local gallery or guild and inquiring about finding someone who does the prints. i don't have the money to invesst in the equipment to do them myself, so i can't advise you in that area. good luck!

Hello Katie - I have just spent half an hour reading your archives and thoroughly enjoyed it! thankyou xo

I think it's normal too. We all need to time to reflect and be on our own. To recharge our batteries and just 'be'.
It's a sign of enjoying your own company - and that cannot be a bad thing!

I love this piece. You are not strange. I feel that way too - only being left alone is not an option. I know the day will come when I will wish my 4 YO was interrupting my thoughts...
