TGIF… right? ha! hope everyone had a great friday… i really like friday night… it’s my favorite night of the week….
the quote for today out of my new little book:
i see my reflection in the stainless of the tap. i know you, those seeking eyes. you’re the one in dire need of time, that thing we can’t buy, what we sell of ourselves to get more of what we think we want, what we sacrifice to seemingly gain. they say time is money but that’s not true. time is life.
time is life….
i had to read this quote a few times for it to sink in. we are always trying to find more time… sacrificing one thing in the hopes of gaining something else… all in the name of time. and no matter what we sacrifice, the time stays the same. can’t add any at all….
there are many days that i wish i had more time… time to do the things i really enjoy. so much of my time is spent working…. it’s that way for a large majority of folks…. and the time away from work is spent catching up on daily chores then resting up for the work coming the next day.
for most my life i have focused on work… and nothing more… it didn’t matter what i wanted to do, or would enjoy doing… i worked… but now i have been forced to slow down some… i have figured out the importance of doing the things that make me feel good – writing, drawing, taking pictures – but there is still work, which is necessary right now…
i guess what i’m getting at here is that it is all so frustrating these days… before i didn’t mind working and i love my job still… but i’m frustrated because now i have these other things i want to do and there’s no more time in the day than there was before LOL
it’s all rather convoluted… shit
so now that i’m done with all that rambling mess (sorry ’bout that), i’ll move on….
i am getting more and more requests and inquiries about drawings… exciting! i’m putting together another website to use for selling, marketing, and shoving my junk down people’s throats ha! i just have to decide on a good name… i have a few ideas…
- being abby
- abby boulevard
- left of abby
- jaded bull
before anyone asks… abby is short for abendroth… the new last name… not so clever but eh it’s how it is ha!
i like all 4 of those and the dot com is available for all 4 of them… the name i really really wanted isn’t available and that just sucks…. abby works…. oh well
i am making a list of words that i like or that mean something to me and trying them out in conjunction with abby and without the name as well… most of the words are synonyms for the original word i looked up…
- unart, nonart, sorta art…
i’ve been playing with various combinations and meanings of all these words trying to find the right sound… i don’t want anything long or too multi-syllabic… something that is easy to remember and maybe a bit catchy
i’m up for some input… ideas anyone?
