Happiness is one of my favorite subjects.
So I find it funny that both the end of the year
and the beginning are full of rules. If you live
in Canada -- today on the second bright day
of a new year, you've been treated to rules
on how to get ready for your own death in the
paper! Hello! There are so many lists both
at the end of the old year, and beginning of
the new -- warnings about every aspect of your
We need a break! A solid, joyful, happy time
and a break from anxious, overbearing advice.
At least artists do. So turn off the sad for a day
or two -- true the world can be a hard place,
life can be difficult, but have some champagne,
eat a candy, hug a friend (OMG I'm doing it).
I plan to try and have as much fun as possible
in 2015. That's my resolution. Today was a good
one. We walked through a great part of this city.
Came home, ate Steven's wonderful turkey soup,
went for another walk and saw the gorgeous lights
still up to welcome this bright, new year, and
then watched a very controversial and funny
movie on TV here in our own house. I hope you
get to see it, but I'm not saying what it was!!!
I can see why this particular movie caused more
than a little bit of a stir!
Today's portrait is another self portrait of me just
hanging out. I may add a bit more dark to it.
But for now, I have a great book and it is late!
Have a-forgetting-all-the-rules-and-having-fun day.
