Hello to you. How are you doing in your here and now? I’m feeling like a word that isn’t normally attributed to a state of being, surrealism. Surrealist art is a lot like my dreams…my life lately. A vast canvas covered with unrelated images that when strung together somehow make sense. The world we are sharing right now is very surreal to me most of the time. So many things that make sense and so many more that don’t all going on at once. Such a mess!
On the one hand we have President Trump and Kim Jong Un shaking hands – which like Dennis Rodman I’m very pleased about and hope it was genuine (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/trump-kim-summit-trump-says-us-will-end-its-%E2%80%98war-games%E2%80%99-with-south-korea/ar-AAyx0hn?OCID=ansmsnnews11) and on the other we have ancient trees dying in Africa possibly because of climate change (https://www.popsci.com/baobab-tree-climate-change). So many extremes all vying for time on the world stage. No wonder so many people are bipolar and have ADD nowadays! Up! Down! Look here! Now there! Forget you saw or heard that! Now for something completely different!

S U R R E A L I S M = 135/9 divided by 2 = 4.5 = 9 cycle – makes sense this sort of thing would be a cycle sort of word!

Exploring Surrealism with Peter Capaldi | Unlock Art – I found this and had to share. Peter explaining this art form makes it a little more wonderful to learn about.
My chalk drawings from the past couple of days are fading and nothing has come to me to put to the slab or paper. My thoughts have been murky. My dreams have been fluid and very little to hold on to and write down in my dream journal. I am not worried. I need this rest period. The veil will open. The curtains will part and show me things to share. For now it’s sleep, words, numbers, concepts and may a random picture or two.
Surreal – by Jackie
“Surreal is the distance between the grass and the dew
The random points of light when assembled
That make me and you
Am I walking or am I gliding
In the stitches of space
Or am I just a particle hiding…..”
Hugs and positive vibes through the wires!
