New Painting #2

Posted 02-25-10 at 06:34 AM by carped1em (Mission Log: Major Tom, present location coordinates...unknown)
I didn't start the painting the other night. T. (exhusband) came over & we hung out. It's very complicated, like everything in life isn't, right? We make much better friends than a couple. It's been about as strange as everything in my life.
As completely horrifyingly ugly as our marriage and divorce were, we're that okay now. He and my Mom were my only anchors the first few weeks out. Two of the last people I would have expected.

So that's why I didn't start the painting....

I discovered painting out of sheer necessity.
I've always loved art. All kinds. You name it & I guarantee I would find something I love about it. I never thought I had any talent for it. I always imagined myself painting but never could find the time or opportunity.

I was forced to experiment with several different mediums and styles in a few days. No, no one held a gun to my head. It was more of a painting bootcamp.
I found an amazing meditation.

Faryal is one of the most interesting people I've had the privilege to call my friend. She is from Pakistan. Her parents were diplomats of some sort so she was raised in Egypt.
She has two darling boys & a "fat faced" husband, her words, not mine.
It was an arranged marriage. She accepted the arrangement because she wasn't in love with anyone else and she thought he was nice enough and seemed to be a good man.
I met her in tech training at my company. While her...

French

Posted 02-19-10 at 05:36 PM by RedHairedWitch (The Inattentive Witch)
If ADHD didn't make it hard enough to understand people, I find myself living in a city where 1/3 the poeple speak French! I don't speak French. Why must Canada be bilingual? Gah!

Its hard enough learning my way around a new city, geting use to horrid city life again and looking fo rowrk. But to also be surrounded by people who don't seak the same language and who are snobs about it. Oh man!

Vent ends here

The Awareness of Having Skin

Posted 02-14-10 at 06:58 AM by carped1em (Mission Log: Major Tom, present location coordinates...unknown)
I'm never aware of what my body really looks like. I think this is partly because I rarely know what my body FEELS like.

Right now, I'm always cold so I wear 1 or 2 shirts & 1 or 2 giant hoodies all the time. Because I haven't been shopping for about 30lbs. or so, all my sweats & jeans fall down. I never really do much more than glance in a mirror, unless I'm doing my hair or makeup. Then i'm usually in a gigantic robe & focused on individual features.
