shifting focus?

i think i'm going to try focusing on art-related things in this blog. i'm getting tired of writing lists of things i/we do, and i haven't had many thoughts to share (not any that i want to share on a blog, anyway).

that said, i just got back from a 6.5 mi walk/jog. to be honest, i felt like i had walked/jogged to the end of the world and back, so i was surprised (and a tiny bit disappointed) when i got home and realized i'd only been out for less than an hour and a half. i really want to get back into running, buuut...i just don't enjoy running by myself. or rather, i do...but i don't. you know? i guess what i'm trying to say is that i already get a lot of alone time, and while walking and jogging alone can be very nice, it's also sort of like concentrated alone time, which can be a bit over-whelming. but then...not very many people are available to go jogging during the day. maybe i'll just have to invest in more gorrillaz, genesis and belle & sebastian- music can be a good companion, though i don't think it's necessarily good to resort to that all the time.

so i'm working on four artsy projects (um, "commissions" might be a better word). i can't really post about any of them yet, beyond the fact that they exist. there's not really a point to, because they're all in the planning stages still. once they are finalized and i can get to the fun part, i may write about them.

i'm also working on another fun artsy thing in my spare time, and i've been taking pictures of it as i make progress. maybe i'll post them later today.

hmmm...i like thursdays.

you should get that husband of yours out and running with you. It'd be good for him, and you wouldn't have to run alone. Killing two birds with one stone :)

true! and yeah...we were doing that for a while, and it was a lot of fun, but it does get a tad complicated. like, if we run right when he gets home (between 6 and 6:30), then i can't start making dinner until 7-7:30, which means not eating until 8, and then the evening is practically over. it wouldn't be something we'd have to do every evening, and i could always do a slow cooker meal those evenings...but that takes a lot of planning and, well...i want to be as lazy about it as possible. hehe :)

Was just reading in Exodus this morning when God called Bezalel to "devise artistic designs, to work in gold, silver, and bronze, in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood to work in every craft" (Ex 31:1-5) and made me think of you. Now THAT would be an amazing commissioned assignment!! To artistically decorate the sanctuary of the LORD!! Wow!
