Extraordinarily nice....

Raking leaves makes me smile

Washing the dishes makes me cry

Listening to Marianne Faithful cheers me up

Hearing "Mad World" puts me in a sad state

Actually, I'm backwards. :) Raking leaves makes me cry but washing dishes often makes me smile. I know, I'm a freak.

I am a woman of few words at the moment. Thanks for agreeing with me.

Hey-it's ok to be however echrai. Why do these things make us cry? Too many thoughts running around in our heads I suppose.

In a way, I think it's quite beautiful the fact that different things - little everyday things often - can have such strong effect on our minds and moods. Whether it leaves us crying or laughing. The human mind is somewhat amazing. But so is the world around us, I think.

Hmm...I not sure what the heck I am trying to say here. Perhaps it's time for another cup of coffee...

You know I think it's the everyday things that allow you to free your mind. Some tasks will always be mundane, and so your thoughts ans feelings run rampant.

I don't know about you PG - but, I only think creatively when I am occupied with mundane tasks - Indeed, I have heard this is common. Isaac Asmimov is one writer I recall saying that he tries to fill his day up with as much baloney as possible, to help him write.

Have you ever had an idea for painting come to you while you were doing nothing, then escape you while you were trying to paint?

Too much baloney is very bad for me. I'd rather have a beer than deal with all the nonsense. It drags me down too much if I'm overloaded.

Going to the studio can be daunting. Full of ideas, then, suddenly, yes you forget them. It's horrible. Or what is worse is that it comes out all wrong.
How does that saying go-"Better left unsaid than to speak and appear the fool" I have painting doubts as such. I try to paint anyway. I can always haul it off to the bin if I hate it.

Are you sensitive to critique? Many artists are sensitive. So are many politicians.
