Hehehe...that post title sounds like I have some sort of Tourette Syndrome. But no...it's the prompt for today's pages! I may have some sort of Tourette's, I think people call it Verbal Diarrhea, but I don't think that's a diagnosable disease at this point. And really, when they finally do make it an actual medical condition, they'll have a better name than Verbal Diarrhea...at least I hope so. Because who would want to have to tell other people "It's not my fault...I have VD." Yeah, that would be awkward. But I digress...and offer you pretty pictures to make you forget about my VD. Hehehe...
Magenta, doodle, numbers prompt #1:
|I really like the bottom...the top...meh, it's ok.|
I wish I would have just continued the flowers all the way to the top, but the great thing about art is that you can have as many do-overs as you want...so that flowers to the top thing will happen soon! Apart from that, I've been pondering my impending old lady-hood...the big 3-0...
When I was a kid, I always thought there'd be some sort of turning point...something would click in my head, and suddenly I'd feel like I was an adult. But that hasn't happened yet...maybe it never will...maybe that's a good thing, I don't know. Sometimes I feel like I'm a plant that keeps growing and growing, but for some reason never blooms...I keep waiting... And waiting... And waiting... I'm starting to wonder if I'm just some kind of dumb plant that will only ever have leaves and never flower!
That sounds really depressing, but I don't mean it that way. I'm still growing at least. I've got some things figured out, or at least much more so than when I was younger. I'm much more comfortable in my own skin...it's not perfect, but it's mine. I press ever forward and all that jazz!
I guess I'm not really a non-flowering dumb plant...I'm more like the tulips in my yard. All this week I've been looking at them. Every day I said to myself "I bet those are going to bloom this week." And they didn't...and they didn't...and they didn't...and I started to have my doubts. Then finally this morning, I walked out of the house to go to work, and was accosted by yellow and orange! All at once, full on colorful fabulousness! And maybe that's what I'm like. I'll bloom out eventually, I just need a little more patience.
In the mean time, I'll keep doing my thing, as described in my other page for today:
