I was advised yesterday that I should get a labradorite stone.  I'd never seen one before.  But man, when it was put in my hands, I did not want to put it down.  The first words out of my mouth were, "this thing is like alive!"

It was amazing. 

This evening I did some googling and found some sites that sell this stone in jewelry or just as stones.  But I think I'm going to wait until I find one in a shop somewhere so I can touch it first. 

It was also suggested I get some tiger-eye.  I do intend to.  But I was familiar with that stone and was very distracted by the pretty and the aliveness of this laradorite.

Can't remember how I got here this morning.  But in following links, I found myself at this video of an Oregon Public Broadcasting interview with a Joseph, Oregon artist.  Here's the link to the short video.

One of the things I'd like to do in the coming months is to draw a little every day.  I've not followed through with that.  But thinking about a post Mrsr58 made this morning about posting a photo-a-day and thinking about what this artist says about sketching--perhaps a short, quick, sketch or doodle of the day might start to get me there.  Calling it a doodle or a sketch is somehow less intimidating than "drawing" everyday.

I've also always liked the idea of an art journal.  This artist does those.

More spammage...

As part of my new journey most of my book reading has been ... well .. different for me.  In the past it would be SciFi or history or science related.

I just recently finished reach Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose.

On my to-do or in-process reading list:

Isn't it weird how when you are faced with some major "thing" in the your life, you start to see "messages" everywhere? Have they always been there and you just haven't noticed? Or does the universe start throwing them at you when you need to see them?

cut again for more on the which I continue my mid-life crisis rambling and also connect everything in the world to my problem and to SPN )
BTW, I am so annoyed at LJ and how it's messing up coding these days....
