These Days

I want to apologize to all my mail art friends... seems I've been such a slacker.  But, in reality I've been working feverishly hard for an upcoming show in St. Petersburg.  Actually I'll be in two shows in November and one in December.  You can no longer find my work at Artful Living in St. Petersburg, FL.  Turns out they didn't want my stuff and showed me to the door.  Actually it has been somewhat of a relief as I have a lot to do for ArtOn Central and Artpool.  So with the extra shows coming up and the local galleries... I feel utterly overwhelmed.  I've also been posting on ebay and in my etsy vintage store.  I shop at yardsales, estate sales and thrift shops to find special things to resell. 

Everything has been such a struggle these days.  This morning I posted, "These Days" by Nico on my facebook page.  My sentiments exactly. 

I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking
These days, these days.
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had the chance to.

I've stopped my rambling,
I don't do too much gambling
These days, these days.
These days I seem to think about
How all the changes came about my ways
And I wonder if I'll see another highway.

I had a lover,
I don't think I'll risk another
These days, these days.
And if I seem to be afraid
To live the life that I have made in song
It's just that I've been losing so long.
La la la la la, la la.

I've stopped my dreaming,
I won't do too much scheming
These days, these days.
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten.
Please don't confront me with my failures,
I had not forgotten them.

Panama City Beach, FL

We recently got the opportunity to go to Panama City Beach, FL to observe the Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day.  It was our first Feast without Ted.  It was hard on the crumbcakes to be without their father but, we survived.  We actually had a glorious time.  We heard excellent messages at church and played in the clear water and on the white sandy beaches.  I feel very blessed to have had this opportunity.  I thank my parents and my church for making the trip possible.
