I woke up crooked this morning. Feeling very invisible. After a few tries to reach out and talk to someone about it (they were all busy with their own stuff, which I so get...), I shook myself off and said "Take yourself on a date...take care of yourself, even if it is just for a little bit...". Grabbed the camera, my wallet, a 40% off coupon for the good craft store, a couple of my "rock my world" rocks and headed out ...
This was the view across the street - blue sky, fall colors poking out from above the roof top..deep breath..let's go.
On the way I listened to good music and sang. The crooked feeling came back with sad songs so I rocked it out instead. Got to the craft store and spent 1 hour looking at all the treats, deciding what treats were for me... I bought :
- beautiful blank note cards
- metallic gold Lumiere paint
- a white and a green gel pen
That's it ! Reasonable, ain't I ?
Then I stopped at the post office. I bought postage for a mail art piece I was sending for a blog friend. Something made me remember my "rock my world "rocks in my pocket. I pulled one out. It said "Let go."
I held it in my hand and said to the nice lady serving me "If I gave your this...", handing her the rock, "would it mean anything to you today ?" She looked at the rock, saw the words, and then looked back at me, directly in my eyes, and said "Oh, yes." I replied "Then it is yours. " She thanked me and I went on my way. I didn't feel invisible any more.
(that was a great one to put on my calendar for my 29 Gifts calendar !)
Then I went home and started working in my art journal. I got three phone calls from friends as I was playing. I knew for sure I wasn't invisble.
I made this cool page in my journal. Kind of Fall-ish, kind of Halloween, kind of Kimbo...
Conversation with Birds - journal page
love this detail shot !
How did you leave a mark today ? You were (are) not invisble.
