I spy…

something with my little eye ūüôā

Somewhere, during my marathon viewing of Netflix this summer, this image presented itself to me. ¬†It was there and gone in a micro-second. ¬†But it brought back vivid memories of the movie “Psycho”!!! ¬†(Original, 1960’s version, in black and white, with Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, more info. here.)

Interesting how much drama can be obtained from the simple behavior of placing one’s eye at a¬†tiny¬†opening. ¬†Certainly a covert action, the “eye” wants to watch but not be seen. ¬†It also places the “eye” in an extremely vulnerable position. ¬†I was intrigued by¬†the¬†implications of this act and felt¬†compelled to¬†draw my version.

I leave you to think about it…

I’ve given up naming the humans I doodle…I won’t remember anyway…so call her whatever inspires you.

Finally, I’m almost to the end of these old, lined notebooks I’ve been using (in an effort to be frugal and save a tree), while my millionaire side craves a moleskine I will no doubt continue with cheaper lined or unlined notebooks.

Remaining,

Out Of My Mind Images (oh my!!!)

PS…be still my heart, there¬†are¬†more to come ūüôā

on being negligent…

Having neglected this blog for months on end, I decided that perhaps it was time to delete it.  To abdicate from my responsibility, to ride blithely into the sunset.

Alas,

that’s easier said than done.

¬†Apparently because I bought and paid for a “bespoke” domain name I am now tied, with bonds of steel, to WordPress for all eternity. ¬†All because I chose not to accept the default web address.

ūüôā

So I sit here moaning and whining because I can’t just press the delete button and disappear.

Is this then poetic justice?

Does anyone really want to know how many blogs I’ve created and left. ¬†If asked I would say, “I don’t remember.” ¬†I created my first website in 1998 on AOL. ¬†I created my first blog in 2009, somewhere on the internet, I don’t remember where. ¬†A lot of creating can go on over¬†eleven years.

I created…because that’s what I love to do…create!

Maintain…now that is another matter all together.

If I remain, I must maintain…maintaining is difficult. ¬†Maintaining requires self-discipline. ¬†Someone once told me I had no self-discipline (yes I remember who, but refuse to share) ūüôā

And it takes time…my time…which in the general scheme of things is becoming less and less as the years go by…

uh oh, do I hear someone out there yelling,

just hit the darn delete button and get on with it

well then, but not today, today my WordPress blog receives a reprieve

BECAUSE

my domain name is paid for until March 2015

ūüėÄ

so I remain
