A little update & some photos

Update
        So, within a couple of days of finishing my Happiness Month meme, I got sick, yes I did and no, I haven't dwelt overly on the implication of that juxtaposition although I'm sure one must exist. Three and a half weeks later and I'm at about 75%, although my allergies and bronchitis are seriously acting up...ah well.
          The only thing I've maintained from the above-mentioned meme is meditating and even that only half-assed. Now that I am again feeling vaguely alive, I hope to do better.
          I have been drawing though, have actually finished four smaller ones over the past month which is pretty awesome considering I hadn't put pencil to paper since last November...geez!! I actually got an idea, while meditating, that has helped me step up my game so, very cool. And yesterday, David and I went to University Art in Palo Alto and, man oh man, I was the proverbial kid in a candy store...I want this and I want this and and and...!!! David sweetly indulged me and I am now, at least on a personal level, a happy camper.

Update
I have similarly been absent here, but as soon as I catch up on some posts, I hope to go back and read the whole Happiness Month meme. I came in in the middle, then didn't get to finish it, so...I'm looking forward to it and to contemplating whether it is for me or not.

More later. FanSee

Re: Update
I had noticed your absence, had even though to message you when...here you are! That you'd go back and read the whole of that meme means a great deal to me. I found it to be a very positive experience and would recommend it. Just, like me and ashmedia and film102 and penelope_web, do it your own way :)

Thank you, sweetie. I think I'm closing in on 90% better, which is terrific.

Does your plan help you feel in control of things. I have so much that is just sitting and has sat for months for one reason or another and sometimes I feel like I'm drowning in it all and going under for the last time. Hee hee

I like your pictures and the way they express you and the things you are passionate about.

My plan does more then help me feel in control, it actually keeps me in control. I've gotten things done I would never have gotten done otherwise.

And thanks about the photographs.

I was wondering where you were, glad to hear you're over the worst of the illness...that sounds like it was probably pretty horrible.

I love the blossom picture. Our spring hasn't got off to a particularly good start so we've yet to have any, but my town is well known for its avenues lined with cherry blossom. I can't wait to see it in bloom, it's one of my favourite sights.

Maybe when your avenues are cherry-blossom lined you can take a photo or two to show us all the lovely. That would be something to look forward to.
