In a thoughtful mood

After the emotional turmoil of last week - most of it self inflicted - I am busily trying to make concrete the fantasies that I thought were my mind's attempts to escape my current condition. A new painting is nearly complete, a series in the works. And several short stories are slowly forming into full being. I never thought I would dive into the short story form. But some ideas I can't think of any other way to express them. Will keep you posted.

In the mean time, here's a song that more or less expresses my mood these days.....

Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Looking forward to hearing more of your painting and good luck with the short stories ... Those things can be dasterdly litte monkeys at times. lol

    Thanks for your comments on my blog, am going to check out Stephen King's, On Writing Book. Thanks for the tip. :)

  2. Yay! I feel the creative vibe rising, Cheryl! I'm so excited for you about the painting and the story writing. Let the inspiration flow! Much love and enjoy a beautiful weekend. x

  3. Hi Sharon, thanks I love writing, and I've grown to really love the short story form. If I come up with even on half way decent story I'll be satisfied. And the King book is excellent inspiration. I've read it several times.

    Hi Carol Anne, thank you, you are a true friend for feeling excited on my behalf. I really appreciate that. Much love to you too - and happy writing! - Cheryl x

  4. ooooooooooh!!! short stories are such a great art form. can't wait to hear more!!

    and hope you have a bright, cheery, and fab weekend! ;)

  5. Handling the seasons of our lives is not always an easy task. Although thoughtful moods are necessary, once in a while, they also can be an bit depressing sometimes.

    Sigh, if only I could paint or write. You are blessed my dear.
    God I sound like my grandmother. Eeeeeekkkkkkkk!!!

    Have a good weekend!

  6. I'm really looking forward to seeing the result of all this, Cheryl!
    At least you're dealing with everything in one of the best ways possible! Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend x

  7. i totally understand where u are coming from. especially the self inflection part. i'm a big fan. dont hate me but it makes artists work better. pain on canvas=beautiful. the bank job is ok. its dull and the ladies i work with are really catty and i love starting shit bc im bored. but luckly i get to live in my head for a huge chunk of the day which makes me happy. i like my head its safe in there and there are cookies. yum!

  8. You are such a creative person. Painting, writing. You're very lucky. I can't even cook.

  9. I love short stories,
    I am outright addicted!
    I am looking forward to reading yours -
    you will keep us updated, will you?

    Thank you for the gift of this beautiful song, performed by a wonderful singer. I hope your weekend was a magical one! Good luck for this new one!

  10. I will not disturb while you feel so creative! Take your time! Look forward to see what you have produced! I guess and hope that you will tell (and show) us!
