Yeah, so... Monday

Up early because, Monday is a laundry day and I didn't get much sleep last night, or the night before, or the night before, because my brain would not shut off.

It's beautifully bright and sunny but more than a bit chilly. Weatherman says tomorrow colder with snow/sleet/ rain that will continue into Wednesday along with this chill. After a beautifully balmy February, March has been a stone cold bitch!

I wish I had some/any artistic ability. I have these pictures/concepts in my head and no way, or ability, to bring them to life. I have tried, doing art on the computer seems beyond my limited artistic abilities (or maybe I just don't have the right programs). Vivid pictures in my head will have to stay just where they are. It has always been a frustration for me, this lack of artistic skill. I cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler! My head is full of color and movement (and calla lilies).

If you doubt my lack of skill in this area then I will quote my high school art teacher who gave me an 85 as a final grade despite my not being able to satisfactorily complete any assignments (we had to take 2 semesters of art and it wasn't art history, it was hands-on creative type of art) - "You are too smart to flunk art".
