Spread 158- A 2012 Note In My Journal December 29, 2011

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

According to the Mayan calendar the world we know will end on December 21, 2012. I don’t believe that but I do believe I should treat it as if it’s my last year here on earth. I’d like to make a note for myself to not forget one important thing! “The important thing is to DO, and nothing else, be what it may.” -Pablo Picasso. My father was very good at that. I should have ‘let’ him teach me that a long time ago. To climb up the ladder. Not contemplate with each and every step “should I, will I be good at it, will I be good at that like the others are, how should I name it? define it? explain it? excuse it? Is what I make worthy of being called art? What kind of art? Will ‘they’ like it?” There is really no time for such mind interruptions, I should commit to ‘doing,’ to keep on fine-tuning my one of a kind voice through hard physical work, to keep on keeping on…doing!!

כל כל יפה וכל כך חכם.
מזלנו שנולדנו לאנשים חכמים גם אם לוקח לנו זמן ללמוד מהם.
מזלנו שאנחנו ממשיכות ללמוד מהם גם בחסרונם.
מזלנו ש.
אוהבת אותך , פנינה

Hi Orly, I was thinking about the 12/21/2012 association with the end of the world. Why doesn’t 1/2/12 have the same connection?
Best wishes for the new year!

Amen, baby.

i don’t believe that either…just a way for some people to not take responsibility for their lives!

but i LOVE that concept of thinking this is my last year…what do I want to do or see or be…I’m really going to think about that one and how it relates to my 2012 Intentions!!

13. Marit - January 5, 2012

Happy New Year Orly! Please, keep on DOING in 2012!!! I love it when you show what you did!!!
