Spread # 102- Constantly July 10, 2010

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Running through my head are the ritualistic attempts to beautify my days, spiritualize my mundanity, quiet my yearnings, adorn my thoughts, prettify my feelings, forgo my disappointments, better my doings, lighten my load…constantly. What’s running through your head?


1. Cris Winters - July 10, 2010

Running through my head – gratitude for my cooking job at the local health food store (exhausting but satisfying in so many ways), anxiety over the “genuineness” of my next art pieces ( I know I just need to start), awe for the Hermit Thrush song outside my little cabin (reminding me that I need lots of magic), happy anticipation at posting my blog about my participation in Orly’s 2009 Round Robin Art Journal (so glad to be connected with Orly again), and monitoring my energy, rest, and doing balance (every day).

There are always thoughts running through my head: guilt, never doing enough, doing too much, should’s, could’s, must’s, fears, loss, want’s…too much…

Forgo my yearnings, qualify my feelings, gather my thoughts, quantify my misgivings, appreciate my surroundings, re-examine my meaning, habitualize my optimism, demonize my pessimism, and do my laundry!

Living more magic, becoming lighter, spicing-up my existence, rebeling against routine, breaking rules, gypsying more, helping people see we are all the same at the core .. that’s only today, tomorrow, who knows what will come running in …

We are just embarking on a trip… On my mind… enjoy my family, discover new places, relax and rest, quiet my doubts, smile, have an adventure and watch the world and everything that you said. I love “adorn my thoughts”… roxanne

Running through my head today: Degrees of Freedom. Confidence Intervals. LIkelihood of change. To my artist self these terms mean personal growth….delivered through the insane challenge of a crash statistics course where I have a midterm tomorrow. And there is definitely dust flying all over the place, so I MUST be on a path. 🙂

bird chatter is currently running through my head…contentment and happiness. We had a lovely weekend of town-wide celebrations, private gatherings…long days spent on bikes. Farmers market and working in our own neighborhood garden.

All the time I had running through my head…I love my life and feel so very fortunate.

thank you for sharing the running chatter in yours !!!

it’s been created and it will soon flourish with
mostly scans of his artwork and little descriptions of his emotional motives, a la orly.

I just found you through the Artful Journey site. I’m hoping to go in Feb. I love this post – it really spoke to me – I’m constantly thinking too of similar things and trying to quiet my mind all the time.

running through my head…
I notice:
a bird song,
the sun pouring in the windows;
running through my head…
I notice:
a yearning that whispers,
an ache for what is hidden,
and an abundant love embracing
what is and what is not…

xox – eb.
