WHAT MARCH BRINGS

 

READY FOR MARCH?

Every month we go (figuratively) through an open door.
This side of the door looked more interesting than from
the outside looking in. At Seaport Village, San Diego.
Thurs Door, Travel Tue

 

 

*Note: Just caught for the reflection! In no way does my poem below
have to do with this bank,
turning on the 405 freeway in Costa Mesa, CA!
It’s more about the general state of things in the USA.

Weekend Reflection

 

They say that puzzles are good to keep problem solving skills and memory sharp,  but am afraid I do it for the fun:)

The truth is not always comforting
It may turn me
inside out
It switches me
back and forth
not knowing
where to turn
who to trust
how to judge
who is evil and
who is good?

One Word Sunday: puzzle,

 

 

No puzzle about this one!
Sun Best – Thorny

 

 

 

Good there are flowers
they bring beauty and joy
even the tiny ones, no matter what.

Opera cake and roses are always welcome!
Mosaic Monday

 

My OC (obsessive compulsive) side:)

With pastels it pays to be organized.
A box for the pastel-coloring pencils, and
little boxes for the fat soft pastel sticks, so they won’t break.
The NU- thinner pastel sticks are not as breakable,
so they go in one of the five transparent bigger boxes
in my pastel art tote. Still thinking about using
my watercolor pencil box, on top of the lid of the pastel pencils.
Do you feel boxed in, or boxed out?

Weird sky or what? Unedited, just brightened the balance.

    Lovely post, Jesh. Amazing how succinctly a few lines of poetry can encapsulate so much that prose often cannot do thus economically. I’m afraid the older I get, the more disappointed I get in the way the world is deteriorating. My concern is for the younger generation who seem to accept so much that we didn’t at their age…
    Thank you for taking part in the Travel Tuesday meme.

  2. What a lovely collection of shots, Jesh. Your pastels and coloured pencils made me smile, I have an exact same collection in my studio room. 🙂
    Thanks for taking part in the “My Sunday Best” meme.

  4. My friend had a bad start to the year and at the time she said she just wanted January to end. I couldn’t really understand why a change of month could change anything but as you say each new month is an open door.

    An intriguing variety of photos today, especially the view through the door. It’s so hard to figure out what’s going on in the world today as people show sides that you have never seen before. My comfort is knowing that God is on my side 🙂

  9. That is an interesting sky with all the different cloud formations. It would make a cool model for a sketch or painting. No matter how much I organize my colored pencils, paints, and art and craft stuff, everything becomes chaos when I work with them. Oh well.
    I like your poem, Jesh. It says how I feel at times, especially about current events. Thank goodness I can find some kind of zen with creating.
    That’s good to know about puzzles. I can sometimes get obsessive completing j180-220 piece jigsaw puzzles online.

    Jesh – thanks again for making the effort to participate in Mosaic Monday. You always bring a breath of fresh air and wonderful creativity. Love the idea of walking through an open door (figuratively) every month. We can leave the baggage behind and start anew. At times, I feel like I am boxed in – like I have taken on too much and have no time for the things I really want to do. My own fault, of course, and something that I can change! The picture of the tree against the blue sky is a million dollar shot!!!!

    Oh yeah, you have to be organized or at least I do. I never would have gotten through all those art and design classes unless I was super organized for creation and clean up. I love the dots of light on the bank. Happy St. Pat’s if I don’t talk to you before then.

      Thank you Jean:) Yeah an open brown door – not much to see, so I tried several angles, but this way there’s at least a view:) Can’t remember what this store sold. I thought the clouds did a wild job in the capture of the tree.
