Working On Some Art Today

Image
Seeing some of the white stuff on the ground this morning was a bit of a surprise. No matter, the schools are in session and the day will go on, it's just a gentle reminder of the season we are heading into and what may be in store for us.
Seeing all the great things that fall brings has been a real joy, like a new president-elect, that in itself is a real joy. I'm glad to have helped the system get him in office earlier this month.
I will be working with a student on an art project of painting something he would like to see. I'm not exactly sure what we will produce but it will be something worthwhile and hopefully a joy for him to work on.

I have my favorite Radio Paradise on my headphones right now and they're playing some really good Squire Nut Zippers "In the Afterlife" it's some really funny stuff. Today I get to rest for a good while with the extra hour of time to waste, I might take a easy finally but who knows. As I've aged, its become a little easier to deal with missed sleep than it was in my younger years. I use to hate missing sleep. I hated having my girlfriend, even if she was one of the most beautiful scenes I ever woke up to, get me up early on a weekend morning just to watch the sunrise.
