The Truth about Big Hair.....

  • Big hair does not only grow out of your head.

  • Big hair can be nasty and gets caught in sunglasses, on door handles, in silly bloody door hangy things at certain cottages and especially in bathroom drains.

  • Big hair smothers darlins in thier sleep

  • Big hair makes HUGE pony tails that actually resemble large trees with strange parastic growths

  • Big hair is heavy

  • Big hair makes big sweat

  • Big hair gets caught in your bum crack! (I can see a calender in that!)

......another sad tale of big hairyness is that, yes, big curly hair grows out your legs too. This requires constant struggle with chemical poisons for controlling purposes. Tonight I decided that it was time for a mow and did open new packet of said chemical and discover a TOOL. Yes a big hair scraper offerer to work with stinky chemical poison. Excellent thought I.....

...a new and better way to poison oneself, most gooderer indeedy........3 minutes later I was scraping copious amounts of big leg hair away, mowing, mowing, much good, yay.......

10 minutes later I have large red scrapy marks all up beautiful hairless walking apparatus! NOT GOODER. Not at all. I will surely have to sue hair removal company now because red scrapy things are even ooglier than long curly leg hairs in my book, yes indeed.

THEN......I get into lovely bath with bubbles and stuff and bathe poor scrapy legs and bounteous body and relax and all nice things.....I get out and what do I see in the bath?

A daddy long legs!!!!! Floating, floating...........dead dead dead

I know that it wasn't there before...

I did scrub the bathroom muchly this afternoon in my piteous attempt to be housewiferly, it was spick!, so that only leaves me to wonder with dread...

Where did it come from?????




Must be funny energies today. Everyone is quiet and having a crisis or two.
Happens like that sometimes.
I have no crisis....this is much good.
I like a crisisless day occasionally......

I have been pondering on why it is so seemingly important to us that others like us and think we are wonderful ALL of the time.
Does anybody actually know anyone who is wonderful ALL of the bloody time?
I certainly don't.
Me especially!
Why do we set ourselves up with such high expectations of ourselves and yet its okay for others (and even expected) to fall apart and stuff up and be human occasionally?
And why should we expect everyone to like us when we don't like everyone?
And if we are expecting others to never fall apart and to always be some kind of paragon then how fair is that to them?
I know that I, in my life, have often put people on pedestals and thought that the answers to my problems could be found in an outside of myself source, namely, another person who I percieved to be wiser/stronger/smarter/ more powerful than myself. It didn't ever work!
People on pedestals invariably fall off as they too, are only human, like ourselves.
I have eventually come to the conclusion that if I am looking for another person to 'fix' my life then I am looking in the wrong place.
And I am also being extremely unfair to the person I am expecting perfection from.
Nobody can live under that sort of pressure without cracking.
I now know that the answers to my problems lay inside of myself and that I am the ONLY one who can implement change in my life and 'fix' anything up for me.
And that I can only do it for me and not for anyone else.
And my friends are the wonderful people who support me in this and let me be me, warts and all, and love me anyway as I love them for the same reasons.
We help and we teach and we lend a hand, we don't 'save' each other because we can't.
Its a huge thing to come to realise that by setting people on pedestals, we are setting them and us, up for a fall........

Food for thought isn't it.

good things that happened today

  • I found a gold coin in the gutter!

  • It was, unfortunatly, a chocolate gold coin and in the gutter so I just had to leave it there and not eat it....bugger

  • I only had one guy with smelly armpits standing over me on the bus on one trip and only one old man that smelt like wee on the other...excellent (plurgh)


  • scored 8 books to read for $7.50 from op shop...mostest gooder

  • got good mum points for giving in to pre menstrual 14 year old

  • didn't bat a lash when got a phone call in middle of kmart layby queue from 13 year olds school expecting me to hop on my broom and whizz right over to pick her sick little self up! Fake! Did ring father type person and tell him to deal with it because I am not a genie this week and he has a car and a license.....

  • Am dealing with 13 year old temper tantrum without violence and calmly saying no to requests for new outfits and expensive presents for friends who will have birthdays this week.

  • Haven't found money tree yet but will not give up hope.

  • Best of all???? MY BIGGEST BABY GOT 1ST IN HER HONOURS CLASS THIS YEAR AND IS TOOOOOO GOOD. I think 95% is pretty good. Yes, very much good. And beating the one they call "smartest man" is even better considering no one ever has! YAY for Tahni Lee, what a star! A medal and a scholarship and some bucks for her......excellent daughter....

  • Of course, its all my fault....I can deal with that.

note to self...

  • do not ever try to do xmas budget at 6.30am again......set up for not good day for sure

  • do not ever have more than 1 child in any other lifetime where xmas is celebrated for sure

  • do not ask son to do anything that requires effort and does not have an advantage for his own self
  • do not yell loudly at said pig son unless you wish to be relegated to crazy old lady status

  • do not rely on people to put money in bank when they say they will

  • do not think ANYTHING will cost $5

  • do not give in to 14 year old when it whines to stay home from school, EVER

  • do not feel sorry for scheming conniving 13 year olds for any reason what so ever as it will always cost you big bucks

  • do not let brilliant daughters go to Catholic Scientist Virgin College where they will be converted and made celebate nuns for sure and will never give you any grandchildren, not that you want any of course!

  • do not trust marys who say they will come for coffee

  • do not make 400 laybys before knowing where money to pay for them will manifest from

  • do not be a grumpy old bitch ALL day long

  • do not ever yell at darlins on the morning of assessments because they will yell back for sure even if you did break your back typing on stoopid computer for 100 years last night for them and now they have work to hand in

  • do not think that just because it makes perfect sense to you that it will to anyone else

  • do not think that I am not grateful, I AM, I am simply getting this out of the way first before getting to bloody gratitude okay!

  • do not forget to take Goji for 3 days in row anymore

  • Phew......

This needs immediate gratification for sure...

Mary coffee-fest at Goldbergs on Thursday at 12......


Monday bloody monday

Thankyou all the marys who have offered to point bones and things at some markers for me.

The trouble is that my marks are directly related to the amount of effort and enthusiasm I did not put into my work Im afraid.

Credits were GOOD considering......

So any boney points will come to me so DONT DO IT!!!

I will just be very gooder next year is all.....

The good thing about next year is that I will be doing subjects I actually like!


No more school talk now, that bit is OVER for now........phew.

Seems that we need to organise a lunch and coffee for several mary's.....I will get back to you soon.....

I have been spending up big on u gar

I am a sucker for sure.....

I told the kids they were getting nothing for xmas......I am a big fat LIAR

As usual they will get too much!

Oh dear.

I finished the drum...excellent

I started another which I have just scrubbed off as it was too too yuk.

Bugger, now must start again.

I am having a bit of trouble adjusting to not having to do evrything in 5 minutes...this will pass for sure!

I have 15 cents in my far will that get me towards the bank?


I am very sick of stupid weather that will not make its mind up! No wonder upduffers have the flu......

I am going because I am just rambling on now.......goodbye

Sunday, November 26, 2006



Am almost feeling human again.

A huge week to be sure.

A little birdy tells me that we will soon have a new mary.....'bout bloody time mary bee I say!

I have been painting a drum today for a lady who has waited very patiently for about 2 months now...bad me.

Mary is back....yay, yay, yay, just in time for me to be compus mentas or however you spell it.

This week my darlin is an art school and it may not be pretty!

Not known for his having to do stuff skills is he.

He just likes doing what he wants, when he wants and how he wants and get stuffed the lot of ya.

Not a good look in assessment week however........hmmmmm.
Might help out a tad me thinks.

I am not too impressed with my marks this year....will have to pull finger and get serious next year for sure.....I am better than a credit!

...and certainly better than a pass in sculpture...ouch....I have consistantly recieved distinctions in sculpture every year and even though I was only going for a pass this semester it bites to not perform to highest potential.......

I will be a house wife this week for sure.....maybe.

I will not be STAFF till Saturday so I will also be a painter of paintings on order and some drums will be done too. This will be much good.

In fact I will be whatever I want to be this week...anyone for coffee and lunch and other such stuff????

Come on, you know you wanna!

I am also an ebay! Oh oh

I dont like santa..........

Thursday, November 23, 2006

I am now understanding why maryBOSS is comatose.......I am a calender club and its not pretty.

I have a swollen lip from biting it today......looks like Ive been punched...must remember not to do that tomorrow!

I will be putting a sign up upstairs that says "Young girls do NOT stand near this railing as young boys down below can see straight up your tiny little skirts....' Or maybe they know this?

Scary stuff.

I experienced a man who ran around the racks pretending to be suss just so mother in law and I would chase him.....

I love mother in law...she is a calender COP for sure....

I love Sandy who came so I could go have a smoke.....thats right 'A' 7 hours. Nicotine gum tastes PUTRID.

In short, I have no feet left, all worn down to the bone, have a punched in lip and severe depression.......rescue remedy is good shit!

Gotta love fact I love it so much Im doing it all again tomorrow!

I AM best STAFF, I told you so!

AND I didnt make one single mistake!


Wednesday, November 22, 2006

This was sent to me by an elderly friend. Just thought I'd share!

A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking
iced tea and visiting with her Mother. As they talked about life, about
marriage, About the responsibilities of life and, the obligations of
adulthood the mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully
and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter.

"Don't forget your Sisters," she advised, swirling the
tea leaves to the bottom of her glass.

"They'll be more important as you get older. No matter
how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the
children you may have, you are still going to need Sisters. Remember to go
places with them now and then; do things with them. "Remember that 'Sisters'
means ALL the women... your girlfriends, your daughters, and all your
other women relatives too. "You'll need other women. Women always do."

What a funny piece of advice!' the young woman thought.

Haven't I just gotten married? Haven't I just joined the couple-world?
I'm now a married woman, for goodness sake! A grownup! Surely my
husband and the family we may start will be all I need to make my life
worthwhile!' But she listened to her Mother. She kept contact with her
Sisters and made more women friends each year. As the years tumbled by,
one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really
knew what she was talking about. As time and nature work their changes
and their mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays of her

After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I've

Time passes.

Life happens.

Distance separates.

Children grow up.

Jobs come and go.

Love waxes and wanes.

Men don't do what they're supposed to do.

Hearts break.

Parents die.

Colleagues forget favors.

Careers end.


Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many
miles are between you.

A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can
reach. When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk
it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim,
cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your
behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley's end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk
beside you...Or come in and carry you out.

Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters,
sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers, Grandmothers, aunties, nieces,
cousins, and extended family, all bless our life!
The world wouldn't be the same without women, and neither
would I.
When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea
of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead.
Nor did we know how
much we would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.

todays agenda

  • into school to lay out exremely wonderful photography for assessing
  • dash to be STAFF for several hours
  • dash back to school to unlay photos and lay out drawings for said same process PLUS be assessed for re entry next year...gulp....all good
  • unlay out said stuff
  • get supplies for starving children somewhere in the midst of this
  • cook dinner for above
  • get ass to Rose Cottage for spiritual upliftment
  • hmmmmm..doesnt sound too bad...we will see

I am finished.......


don't tell in case they make up some more work for me.......

but I am finished......

in 3 more days I will not be an art school anymore........

until next year........

hee hee.......

I am finished!

Monday, November 20, 2006

oh oh im half way theeere....

I am not 3 reviews anymore!
Thank goodness for that, they were like clouds hanging over my head...

I have organised all of my drawings, my photography folders are done, my print works are sorted and various journals are looking like somebody cares about them....phew

Now I ONLY have to mount 7 works, do a studio plan for OH&S, complete a limestone sculpture, paint 2 drums and possibly try to fit in a couple of landscape sketches...or not, whatever.

All this by tomorrow evening......hmmmmm.

The sculpture and sketches are not really necessary as I will pass anyway but needed if I wish to get more marks........we will see. At this point I am only caring about passing and I should/will be right!


I must be having everything in perfect order before last minute as I will be emergency STAFF for frazzled mary lots at the other end of the week.....

All is well.



Mary extraordinaire

How 'bout you?

A spiritual being
Now is the time
Completely divine
Helping mankind
Endlessly loved
Lovingly cared for
Lasting forever in spirit

Thanks for the idea Shann.

a goodie

Have a look at this, especially you Jen.

Have a good day everyone!

Sunday, November 19, 2006


Its been a big day.

Its been a big week, and it will be another one this week.

I am an art school nearly done.....

Been to church with mary's.....strange but true.

Had some coffee with my mary's too.

Can't do a mary lunch tomorrow...snoff.....must WORK so as not to be an art school anymore this year.

Next week I will be free......

to do my other work that has piled up and not gone away.

And to be bestSTAFF for poor harassed maryBOSS.

Which is just fine by me.

I need to do my children too.

and possibly some housework...plurgh.

Bring it on I say....

I can do anything!

new day dawns

Yep, a new day dawns, again.

Funny how that happens all the time.

Today I am not tired....not yet anyway.

I went to bed at 8.15 pm last night and woke at 7 am. That could be it!

I am going to be STAFF this morning and must prepare for onslaughts of wild shopping energies and old ladies with trolleys and many whinges and also people who purchase many multiples of calenders and require sensible and honest pushing of red and green buttons and tidy racks to choose from. I must do constant battle with large slippery bags which will NOT open in a co-operative manner for me to put calanders in EVER and be smiling and pocket p##ing at same time......I am very goodest STAFF......

I am going to be student of light today for which no preperation is needed.....and no assessments either, excellent...

I am going to have a good day.....I have decided!

You have a good day too.

bronzing an angel

I would have blogged this morning...

I went to blog this morning....

but blogger was offline!

I was shocked and stunned and stunted and all of those bloglessly appropriate reactions......

needless to say, I didnt blog.

I am blogging now which is not a good thing as I am very tired and a wee bit cranky and covered in paint from painting droopy angel to resemble bronzed masterpiece and trying not to kill children who all whinge because someone has to go and buy pizza....go figure....I would be grateful for pizza but will not be having one as that is not in my best "making pants longer" interests.


Speaking of which, I am very good! I was craving chocolate today, big time mad drooling craving type thing and I was out shopping and I went to Woolies and walked in to buy some brown and sinful stuff and came out with 2 white peaches which I then ate with no guilt whatsoever....too gooder me....

I have M & M's in the cupboard that I just remembered I have forgotten to eat....goodness

(Someone who didn't really know me may think I am extremely up myself from reading my blog I have just thought.....oh well....Im not!)

I have not written my reviews yet......plurgh

I am in control of everything else though......excellent

I am best STAFF tommorrow and also best Angelic Raihner even though times conflict a tad....

I recieved a very strange text from a crazy mary today regarding my mental state and certain bathroom habits and also drooling and other such things.....I think this mary is perhaps a little odd so I just played along with her in case she came and got me and de-ghosted me or something....those marys who didnt send this text may or may not know what I am talking about.....dont worry, she is sinfully challenged at present and cannot help it...we will send her healing for sure.....

I am tired...can you tell?

I came home and darlin' was vacuuming the front verandah!

I kid you not....

Life is strange

Good but strange.....

You get that.

Oh yes......

I have now done my last lesson for the year.......


Thursday, November 16, 2006

hee hee

Well I guess that everyone else left the cottage full of beans and suddenly died in the ass when reaching homefronts.

Thats what happened to me........

I am not 3 reviews and that is sad, I will be them tonight....late, late, late.

Last night was for marys and for much noise and for good fun.

MaryBOSS was very funny, she needs a gong for sure.

Marymuggle is much fun and GG is good value too.

Mary Jen hides from cameras but they get her anyway...

All marys are too cool......

I am going to school for my SECOND LAST lesson day of this year....YAY

madness and mayhem and lots of fun.....

Guess what we got up to at the cottage last night?

A happy darlin'

Workin' the room

Beautiful pots

Cheeky bugger wont stop talking...


and more beautiful's

I will be dead meat....for sure and sure this mary will kill me deadest now!

And now Im here...


What a couple of days!

...and its not over yet.

I am still 3 reviews....


MY ESSAY IS DONE, FINISHED, OVER WITH AND KAPUT. I am a goodest mary for sure now.....

The exhibition was a darlin' was star and did sell lots of beautiful stuff.

Mary's Rednose and Deb did come to see and were very professional exhibition goers too....much sangria and little bits of nibblies were had and ooh's and aaah's were very satisfactory indeed.....they can come again for sure.

Did see lots and lots of people we know there who weren't expected and didn't see some who were.


Now some mary's know where I live when I am not at home or shopping or at the cottage-ing.

Some people's are bastard baby stealers and I am not happy with them but no more of that now.

Darlin' is sagging now that he can.......been a long week for that Indian.

Will post pics later after son from mars has had his turn which I am stealing in case I fall asleep at table whilst penning reviews for pregnant teacher who cannot be abused because of condition.......plurgh

Watch this space!

I am not an essay anymore.
Now I am quiche cooker extraordinaire and several reviews plus a partner of darlin who is having an exhibition opening tonight....


More later.

Monday, November 13, 2006

Today I want you all to go to Raihns blog and read her post on busy busy that she may have written for me because I am far too busy to blog

..........this is because



I will see you later when I am not an essay anymore!.........

an angel in the clouds

I played with the photo I took of the cloud last evening, just cropped and enlarged, and now you can see what I was seeing.

Some stuff I exhibition of sorts

but wait.....

Friday, November 10, 2006


I am soooo tired.....

Have been out to an exhibition opening.

Was much good.

My favourite teacher is the artist.

Ms Amanda Davies.

See above pic....

Beautiful woman.


The lady who opened the show looked very familiar to me.

After a while and lots of penetrating looks and brain picking we remembered we had met when I was in rehab and she was a visiting teacher type person who actually introduced us to spiritual basics........x- files moment for sure.

It was quite amazing to see me through the eyes of someone who only knew me as a shattered wreck and to acknowledge how far away from that me I am now.

Amazing and confirming.

Much goodest.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,

but by the moments that take our breath away.

Took this picture on the way out to Morpeth tonight.
See the angels wing?

How to not suck at faces - for mary jen

  • Keep lips tucked behind teeth at all times

  • Stand at least one metre away from faces

  • When unable to avoid going near a face, turn head sharply to the left, preferably as far back as possible without actually dislocating neck

  • Feed all faces that live with you 50 cloves of garlic per day

  • Duct tape across face works well in times of great stress or low resistance

  • Paint all faces with wart kill before venturing close, a favourite of mine!

  • If all else fails, have lips surgically removed

  • If you have a 'lapse' don't beat yourself up...apologise to suckee and move on, its all for the best really

Plastic surgery with a conte crayon

Excellent guess work from all of the marys!

I am much more impressed with you lot than my drawing.

I have discovered that I can remove wrinkles and pluck eyebrowswith a putty rubber!

Most excellent indeed.....

And sagging jowls, pfft, all gone.

I just can't figure out how to stop me from looking slightly indigenous.

Actually, I like that and wish it was really me!

But no googly eyes....hmmmm

Anyway, my kids think its scary!

Another productive day was had.....too bloody good again

One small glitch when I realised to my great disgust and despair that I had left my printing stencils at home......aaaarrrgggghhh

Was saved from untimely art career demise by my darlin' who leapt away, albeit a little reluctantly but a bit of two year old type stomping by me soon fixed that right up, from his kiln firing and drove me home at great fast and furious speeds, only taking out one little old lady and two great danes, to get my stuff!!

The day was saved, the prints were done and turned out mighty fine.....yay

Portfolio presentation is well on its way with great visionary statement written by me......


Luncheon with maryotherme tomorrow and then sculpture to finish off droopy angel type thing.....very fine plan

What a week!

So far, so good.....

Only one more to go before breath can be drawn....

Some tips on how to obtain a CSV......

  • they don't have to be catholic although it helps if ones mother was baptised into said creed
  • they will soon be catholic if you send em there, however, with no spiritual training or preference, this is the MISSION of some loverly nun type beings who aren't actually nuns
  • and are very good at what they do, whatever it is, spread love or some such thing, plurgh
  • oh dear
  • do not send your child to CSV training unless you want a nun type personage living with you at some stage
  • they may grow out of this
  • or not
  • hmmmmmmm

Query: Is it usual for cats to pee on everything after they have been desexed?

Is it illegal to stomp on said cats?


Wednesday, November 08, 2006

and that is that

Another Wednesday over.

Odd not to have gone to the cottage.

I have been doing very important school business today and I am toooooooo good.

Almost organised, sort of, better than I was yesterday at any rate!

Here is a picture I had to do tonight......who is it?

If you can tell I will be very suprised.......

I am a weirdo for sure!
Amost strange and unusual thing happened today....I came home and the house was vacuumed, the washing up was done, bathroom spick and span, washing spinning away merrily and even neatly folded toilet paper was in my dunny!
Whats this I cried....I have come to the wrong home...oh my gosh.....the faeries have been!!!
So exciting...
Yep, Tahni is home and got bored
They train 'em well at Catholic Virgin College... cool was that!
Must be off, I am very busy.........

One day I will have time to tell you all about it!
Oh yes, today I am not half dead or bleeding to death anymore.......this is much gooder


So now it is another day!
Today I shall

  • walk in a state of grace, knowing that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and doing my very best and that is good enough
  • be grateful for many things including the fact that I have only 6 more school days left til assessment
  • drink more water and less coffee
  • eat good stuff and not too much of it
  • not punch anybody in their noses


Have a good one my friends, CREATE it......

If any one noticed I wasnt here ,well, it was all mary jens fault.

She did put nasty things on her blog about computers doing terrible things......

and my computer did read it......

and decide to blow up just because she said so!

Thats right....BLOW UP........pffft

Hard drive?

All gone.....


Power board?


Good news is?

Bad news is?

Plurgh for sure.

Good news is?

Got paid for a drum today......

Gotta love it.

pink energy in a glass

Recipe for good stuff

  • take 1 glass of beetroot, celery, apples and carrot juice
  • add one lovely night of full moon ritual and wishes with some favourite people
  • and several hundred pretzels

Excellent for an instant energy boost


I found it.

It was there all along.......

Two cd's in one cover......


I forgot about that bit......hmmmm.

Now Im not in the mood anymore.

Took 14 yr old shopping, a good reminder to never do that again. Wanted 1 pair of canvas sneaker type things of which there are approximatly 2000 styles out at this we like ANY of them??? NOOOOOOO we don't.....

Layby 3 xmas pressies for said least something will be liked!

Did see maryBOSS who didn't need to go to the loo and had mother in law staff on duty. She does want to hit someone very much.

Have been reminded what xmas shopping hell is like again...

Can't find a large slave anywhere....

Will have to settle for pretzels instead.

Did make yummy juice type sustenance for me and darlin' for lunch......good betterment for sure.

Am very tired still and a bit scrambled...full moon maybe....or some other such universal flexing.

What ever, I can deal with it......some energy would be nice ...maybe tomorrow.



I cannot find my cd with my photoshop pics on it.....
I know I put it in my folder at school to bring home, there were 2 of them...
I have one and the other has vanished mysteriously into the ether...
How is one to compile images when said images have done a bunk??
This is not good....
I am p#^^%d much orf.....

Actually it is not so bad, I have copies.....


where they are inaccessible until Wednesday.....

And not do-able here and now, when I have time and motivation.....

Bugger it a very lot!

Guess I will have to write the bloody essay after all...I am trying to avoid it but keep tripping over the 12 metre high stack of books in the kitchen.....

Kandinsky schmandinsky...not schmick....schmickless.....unschmickable for sure.

I forgot to go to Shann's do last night...I was thinking it was still weeks away and now it is done....bugger,,,I am apologising profusly.

I have wasted 3 hours trying to work out budget for upcoming Yuletide festivities...not a good look....need more $$$$ universe, please........NOW......#&*@# electricity bills .....(why do those things go blue? Is there such a web address as that? Wonder what happens when you click on it?)

Am definately a bit nuts this morning.....too much sleep probably

How do you spell definatly??? It never looks right...





I will be back when I have my head on straight.....

A man is driving down the road and his car breaks down near a monastery.

He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, "My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?"The Monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix his car.

As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. A sound not like anything he's ever heard before.

The Sirens that nearly seduced Odysseus into crashing his ship comes to his mind.He doesn't sleep that night.

He tosses and turns trying to figure out what could possibly be making such a seductive sound.

The next morning, he asks the Monks what the sound was, but they say, "We can't tell you. You're not a Monk."

Distraught, the man is forced to leave.

Years later, after never being able to forget that sound, the man goes back to the monastery and pleads for the answer again.

The Monks reply, "We can't tell you. You're not a Monk."

The man says, "If the only way I can find out what is making that beautiful sound is to become a Monk, then please, make me a Monk."

The Monks reply, "You must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of grains of sand. When you find these answers, you will have become a Monk."

The man sets about his task.

After years of searching he returns as a gray-haired old man and knocks on the door of the monastery.

A Monk answers. He is taken before a gathering of all the Monks."In my quest to find what makes that beautiful sound, I travelled the earth and have found what you asked for:By design, the world is in a state of perpetual change. Only God knows what you ask. All a man can know is himself, and only then if he is honest and reflective and willing to strip away self deception."

The Monks reply, "Congratulations. You have become a Monk. We shall now show you the way to the mystery of the sacred sound."

The Monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, "The sound is beyond that door."The Monks give him the key, and he opens the door.

Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone.The man is given the key to the stone door and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby.

And so it went that he needed keys to doors of emerald, pearl and diamond.

Finally, they come to a door made of solid gold.

The sound has become very clear and definite.

The Monks say, "This is the last key to the last door."

The man is apprehensive to no end.

His life's wish is behind that door!

With trembling hands, he unlocks the door, turns the knob, and slowly pushes the door open.

Falling to his knees, he is utterly amazed to discover the source of that haunting and seductive sound......

But I can't tell you what it is because you're not a Monk.

Pic is a bit fuzzy.....hmmmmm......looks better like that!

I will change it later...........after I fix the neck up...

more good stuff......

I did have a good day on friday. Lovely fun lunch with excellent mary raihn friend who makes me laugh and think and eat bleeding cows and drink skim milk and water.......much good.

Excellent sculpture class getting filthy dirty and covered in plaster and lots of blood from sticking wires accidentally into various fingers. Droopy angel type thing coming along quite well.

Girl type teenagers gone from house to father type place and alien boys and darlin's and self ate pizza what someone else cooked......

Not good betterment but thats ok

thursday on my mind.....

  • wondering when I will ever have the time to write something here that doesnt require point form

  • have handed in reviews and got brownie points for 3 instead of 2, yay

  • had interesting phone call from lady in panic because her drum maker (who we know and whom has been trying to get our 'secrets' out of us for ages) failed to honour a commitment to have a drum ready for her to paint for an order and we did just so happen to have a lovely one all ready to go in exactly the right colour and were wondering why we stained a rim purple with no order weeks ago .... this woman is doing orders for people she met at a Doreen Virtue do and is getting orders from the AI website and we will be accredited for the making of these drums that she paints and get our website out there and all that jazz.......could be a good thing .....(what think my psychic friends on this?)

  • Did survive printmaking and finish horrible first effort at screen printing and start second one that I like MUCH more betterer and may even stop me from hating it altogether....yay

  • Having decaf, green leaves and water with mary friend in the morning before going to sculpture to work on drooping angel type welded steel rod thing and rustling up a large slave for full moon from somewhere........looking forward to these things much

  • ummmmmm

  • have made enemies of my children by forcing them to eat chicken lasagne....

  • instead of chicken 2 minute noodles

  • its been a good day but noone has blogged very much and so I am going to bed and hoping I wake up able to fit in my jeans without a coathanger 'cause my darlin' told me my bum looks really big in the comfy ones....I did point out that my bum actually IS really big right now and he said ........"oh"

  • ..............WRONG ANSWER DARLIN' are now IN THE POO....................and I will scribble on your face!

  • 'nite all


I have awoken, plurgh.

I am blogging at 6.22 am because I can!

Have awoken 14 yr old teenage daughter so she can indulge in her latest fantasy and run around the streets 'jogging' at wee hours of mornings with friend....weird

Speaking of wee.......Lilith has chosen to honour me by weeing on my schoolbag! Grrrrr

This will possibly necessitate the running of washing machine at ungodly hours AND taking smaller bag to school which may mean I am not crippled this evening.......I will be grateful it was empty and not full of freshly written reviews and that the cat is not kicked to death because I cant find her.....

I am not looking forward to screen head just isn't coping with doing things in reverse......

I am looking forward to never having to do it again!

After this year is done (which I must pass all subjects in order to do next year) I will be able to CHOOSE which 2 elective subjects I wish to persue.

I will be doing painting and sculpture and NOT NEVER printmaking and photography.........that will be very yay.

Now, I must be off to make lunches and drag all the peoples from the caves and slap em around a bit to wake em you do.....I will slap me too

ps. mary is now orificially MY CAR!

Have a great day and I will read you tonight!

pps. I am not really a violent person, merely living vicariously through my blog. If I were a violent person all of my children and animals and darlin's would be much better behaved......alas I cannot.......plurgal!
