Day 10: 30 Days of Selfies: Travel


Ah, the places I’ve been and the places I’ll go… My awesome travel themed art deck came from Jessica Brogan’s Card Deck Swap yesterday. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the talented makers out there who contributed their creative genius to this endeavor. My day is so much better for having your tiny shining bits of light in it. You inspire me.

travel-swap-1I am headed back down to the couch. PT whipped me today and I ended up vomiting while there thanks to this nasty headache pain that increased five days ago. My therapist Heidi was super gentle but sometimes you just can’t move forward until you stop.

These little beauties will help me ooh and ahh for a while without taxing my brain or my balance. I’m always amazed at how many different varieties of creativity appear in these cards and how much love, attention and beauty each artist packs into a 2.5″ x 3.5″ canvas. I think it is what hooked me on making mini art canvases like ATC and ACEO so many years ago.

travel-swap-2I also heard from the marvelous Michele Mekel that the altered spoon she’s created for me has gone postal and should be here by Monday. I am stoked, and also really happy that she is patient with my return swap, and is kind and compassionate about my need to conserve energy. Some people are just good people. I am fortunate to be surrounded by them.

Even when the world seems like it can’t get any worse there are always gems of goodness to be found. Most of mine are collected from art and great friends, that morning cup of tea and the silent walks in nature and my kids who keep me laughing, even when it hurts to move my head.

Today at PT I had to reschedule my mammogram due to a conflict. I asked the tech how long to allow for the appointment. She leaned in, whispered, “do you have implants?” at which point I heard my 18 year old snort and whisper back, “I don’t think they would be hitting the floor if she did.” Yeah, that’s the kind of humor that runs rampant in my life – you have to have the ability to laugh at yourself and find humor in the every day no matter if the only place you can travel is in your own mind.
