21 Nov 2017 Exploring perception (Drawings)

21 Nov 2017 1215pm Jackie Wygant outdoor chalk drawing understanding why my perception is different Alvarado TX

21 Nov 2017 – 1215 pm – I didn’t really understand this drawing until I got my notebook. It’s about perception. When you have a balance of your male and female aspects, at least for me, it opens your mind and expands your perception of the world.

21 Nov 2017 137 pm Jackie Wygant outdoor chalk drawing birds tree and geometric building dream Alvarado TX

21 Nov 2017 – 137 pm – this is another drawing of me exploring a dream I had about a huge tree, birds and a geometric building. How I flew away while the other two birds remained. This time there is something new…a bird trapped in the geometric construct. The lamp is a symbol I’ve used in many of my drawings through the years….keep your light on, remain vigilent for you do not know when the master comes.

21 Nov 2017 Jackie Wygant faux Alexandrite glue gun ring made today Alvarado TX

21 Nov 2017 – Glue gun ring #2 set with a faux Alexandrite stone that was in a silver ring that got ruined.

Hello to you.  How are you in your today?  It’s 3:07pm here as I begin to write to you.  Today was changing sheets on the bed, doing laundry, getting groceries and I mostly spent time outside drawing.   I got an adorable picture of Link with his tongue sticking out at me.  Sent my Aunt Ruth a picture of me outside (before coloring my hair, I caved to a bit of vanity – not ready to go gray yet!) to wish her Happy birthday today.  Wanted her to see a smile with my texted sentiments of loving and missing her on her special day!

I read the letter Mom wrote to me this morning.  These last lines of the letter had me crying for quite a few minutes it touched me so much, “Well, I really don’t have much to write about – you understand don’t you! Anyway I like to let you know that we are thinking of you.”  Some times that is the reason I keep up with this blog!  Another Thanksgiving passes with us passing these sentiments across the miles…..where is my transporter lol?!  Home! Now! We were going to go last year, but “me” happened and we had to cancel.  I also made another glue gun ring for my faux Alexandrite stone I really like.

We will be celebrating Thanksgiving with Kyle’s family.  I’m so proud of his Mom as she took my advice about trying something besides the traditional meal….make it a little easier on her.  We are doing a pizza party like my friend Les does with her family for the holiday.   I can remember Les telling me about how one time they actually had authentic Chicago style pizza’s flown in lol.  It’s important to find your own way to celebrate special occasions and not get stuck in traditions that may not suite who you are anymore.

As a kid and young woman, I can remember part of celebrating Thanksgiving involved going to the Mall for Black Friday sales.  Doing that isn’t part of my life anymore.  I would much rather spend time with people I love than go shopping for more shite nobody needs!  Some people really enjoy the thrill of the hunt for sales and all that – good for them.  Not my thing.  I really don’t enjoy shopping these days.

Anyhew — love, hugs and best wishes through the wires to you!

  1. I like your thoughts about male and female aspects… that makes sense, YES!
    I’m with you for thanksgiving, it is better to be with those we love than to fight with those we dislike in a shopping mall…. but nevertheless I will look for some essential stuff online… ;o)

    • I knew you would understand Easy. You and I share paws with the same sheet of music in a lot of ways. Although I think you have me beat in the shopping department lol! Part of the reason I don’t like shopping is it’s overwhelming for me as a sensitive person to spend too much time in crowds or places with lots of “unhappy” energy. Some stores you almost need a shower after being in – they need a spiritual smudging! Kyle wants to do shop small Saturday so we may do that. Support our local small business folks. Hugs to you – thanks as always for coming to visit and leaving some interesting words and thoughts. It means a lot to me.
