8th wedding anniversary

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

  

On a personal note, Today the Hubster and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary.  I recognize  that I did choose a life with the right "one".  It was worth being so "picky" as my best gal pals use to say.  And well, finding someone to put up with my moody, eccentric artist ways was just plain lucky!  Sometimes people are surprised that we are compatible, given that the hub is a computer geek/aerospace engineer, but for me, I knew after the first date that he was the real deal.  Aside from what we do in life, our personalities are just in sync, like minded values, vision, energy, sense of humor, the stuff that is the glue. No more warts, no more frogs, who wouldn’t be happy about that.

I have a bunch of art work right on the cusp of being finished and that is another good thing to be happy about. After a year full of challenges, recognizing what to be happy about is a healthy reminder. I do hope the challenges in 2008 are more art related, and while I realize that adversity helps one "grow" and define what is important, I do think I had more than my fair share in 2007 and while its a bit premature to be thinking of 2008, I fully expect Nov and Dec to be delightfully normal, uneventful, boring,  just like I like it. Not that predictability is necessarily a good thing, but I continue to be interested in clearing the brain clutter, in simplification and less, and so, freeing my mind up for artistic and creative challenges. I’m writing it out loud right now, right here, I intend for the remainder of this year’s journey to be one of mindful presence, and peaceful and loving endeavors.
