My mood is better than it was earlier in the week although I wouldn't say that I'm exactly sane yet. 

I'm happy with the President's announcement yesterday where he came out in favor of gay marriage. Yay!
I'm cranky with the reaction from so many religious conservatives.  Boo Hiss!
But it cheers me to see the support, especially from people in my generation and younger.  Yay!

I've read two cozy mysteries so far this week and am part of the way through my third.  Fluff reading, yes, but that seems to be what I need right now. 
I've also started a book on the myths and legends of Ancient Egypt, definitely not fluff reading, but also seemingly just what I need right now.  At least it works to keep me interested while at the gym. 

I am getting to the gym although not every day like I want.  I skipped yesterday as I intended to get some of the grass cut.  Unfortunately it started raining about 30 minutes after I got home while I was still eating dinner.  So no yard work last night.  I don't know yet if I'm going to hit the gym or try again on the yard after work today.  If I go to the gym I can read.  If I go home I can get at least some of the grass cut before it gets out of control again.  decisions decisions.

Work is work and I don't really want to discuss it right now as it takes up far too much of my time as it is.

I'm still slowly working on the painting.  I'm nearly done with all the "stained glass" color, although only some of the panes have turned out the way I wanted them to - some aren't translucent enough so there may be some over painting in my future.  Once I get all the panes done I'll start working on getting the translucence and depth I'm looking for, ink or paint in the Latin script, age the entire thing, then do the leading.  I'm leaning towards more mixed media than all acrylic for this one.  We'll see how it goes.  Even if the end result sucks I'm having fun working on this one and I consider that a success.  I'm also taking pictures of my progress that I'll try to start posting this weekend. 

I also picked up a copy of the Indianapolis Art Center summer class schedule.  I'm not sure if I'll take a class or not but I want to see if they have something that interests me.

So yeah, things are OK.  I'm still feeling kind of 'off' but better than earlier in the week.  Maybe partly hormonal?  Who knows.

I started the painting.  Not much of a start really, just sketching/painting in the lead lines between the glass panes (or what will be the panes of glass if I can figure out how to get the stained glass effect I want).  Still, it's something.  At least I know the geometric shape of my "window".  It will change by the time I'm done, I'm sure.

And it has a (working) name.  No color other than black and it already has a name.  *grin*

Soliloquy of a Dead Language.

Being creative again feels weird.  Good but weird.  Almost painful in a way.  Like I'm trying to use muscles I've let atrophy.  I kind of like it.  :-)

I have something bumping around in my head that may actually be an idea for a new painting.  Something like an abstract stained glass window with latin script from curse tablets.  So, you know, it works on multiple levels.  I don't know if I can, or will, do this but its kind of neat to actually have a creative spark pop into my head. 

The last time I had an idea for a painting was, um.....too long ago to remember.
