A Soundtrack and A Smile #2

What a week.

Monday when I was walking home I glanced across the street to see a pig walking in the opposite direction. Talk about a double take. I don’t live in a farm community, so it was bizarre, but it did make me smile. Apparently he belongs to a neighbor and is safe at home once again. It made me think how wonderful it would be to see things like this more often. I wonder if it was a sign. lol

We have a new President and a whole lot of nonsense (from both sides) going on. The acting out online and on the streets is just vulgar. The day after the election I felt quite low, not necessarily because of the turn out, but because I thought that the year + online insanity would finally be over. Well I was wrong. I have second hand embarrassment for the people pulling crap on others because they are unhappy. Not to mention the cringe worthy online bullies. If you don’t like something there are ways of putting it out there that doesn’t end in name calling or threats. That’s enough election talk. I am at this point worn out and bored with all of it.

Most of this week was kept busy with writing and art. I truly enjoy both. My mind has been purging lyrics and melody and my hands have been busy with learning manga drawing. Sketching and reading have really kept my mind in a good place. A place I like.

I haven’t quite got the hang of the once a week blogging yet. I remember the old days of MySpace when at any moment you could just plop down your thoughts and have fun conversations about it. I don’t think that is the case here though. It feels so odd, but art, photos, adventures, and music are soon to come.

  1. Totally agree in the election part. It is sad. I refuse to discuss and possibly lose friends over something like that. What ever happened to agree to disagree…we live in this wonderful country that has the opportunity to vote for our leaders. There will always be someone elected that you don’t agree with but the beauty of it is that it will only last for a few years and not a lifetime like in some countries. Our forefathers knew what they were doing. Very smart men. Those of us that didn’t agree with the turnout, me included, have to now focus on coming together and working on new prospects to run again in 2 years and again in 4 for the presidentsy. Let’s put our big girl panties on and deal with the hand that was dealt.

    Now onto a lighter note, a pig you say? How adorable!! You need to take a pic. I think PT needs a friend to hang with.

    Can’t wait to see your hard work. Glad you are enjoying your love of the arts. Keep working hard. Enjoy

    • I couldn’t agree with you more! I wish more people would look at it this way before acting out like school yard bullies and online trolls.
      I really wish I had a camera with me for a piggy photo-op. It was a surreal moment, it took me a second to realize it was real.
      I can’t wait to see your pics and your hear stories of Africa!
