Going...going......gone


I found myself avoiding everything I have to do the other day. I know, I know…you are gasping in astonishment. I’ve finally got the final pattern drawn for the gauntlet, and a black mannequin hand ordered from eBay, so that fitting the glove top will be easier. My mega-laundry is finished…

And well, PSP is a lot more fun than the dishes, isn’t it? I’m never sure what I’m trying for in these until I’m done. (This is how I write, bead, and live, actually.) Afterwards, looking at a piece I’ve played with, I often see my state of mind reflected very clearly.

So this one would be called, “Losing Focus.”

I love it - and I didn't just take the time to write that because I'm avoiding the mess in our hotel room and the fact that I need to get dressed for the day...No...not me. I'm uber-focused. Always.

Neptune calling ....

Glad the gauntlet is advancing. I mentioned what you were doing to my friend J and he said to tell you that Shakespeare's father made gauntlets. Well,that's what he told me....

My goodness! This is the third time I've tried to talk to you, but this crazy window keeps jumping around. I suppose it's all my own fault. It took so long to load that I started clicking on this that and the other, and then when I had something written, the clicking started going into delayed action. What I wanted to say, is This is great. Losing Focus? Ha ha. I enjoyed all your posts, which I read down to where I'd left off before, as I've been away. I especially like the princess story. That was great. The security gate was, too. What fun reading and gazing. Thank you.

"I'm uber-focused. Always."

I guess that makes me unter-focused.

Thanks for another great entry, LJ.

Hey, don't think just because I'm here commenting that I too am "Losing Focus" because hey, I'm not, I'm totally focused on packing and cleaning. I'm not at all admiring the vibrant colors in your profile pic, and I am in no way envious of the PSP fun you've been having while I'm here totally focused on my packing and cleaning in anticipation of meeting my Get Out deadline. Nothing could distract me from my packing and cleaning, LJ, not even a PSP post to your blog. Focused. Yes. I. Am.

Dear Mella - many no-place-to-call-home hugs.
Mary - definately. Neptune conjunct my Sun. Oh god. Tell me it will eventually move!
Vita - ain't blogger grand? And thank you so much for your concerted efforts to get through!
KD. You and Mella are uber/unter both.
Me? I'm not even on the same planet at times. Wait - I see you both approaching on my Not The Same Planet.

LJ--Haven't been posting, but have been reading. Great stuff, as always, what comes out of your mind. I love traveling to this particular place on the planet, as often as I can, never knowing what new encounter awaits. Thank you.

LJ said...

Ahh. Lucas. So glad to hear from you. Thank YOU.

You are my role model, Jess. Such control, such self-discipline. Ok. I'm smirking. But only a little. It's a sympathetic smirk.
