Outside my window…is an evening inching towards completion. At a little past 10:00 p.m. we have cloudy skies…a fairly steady wind from the north at 14 mph. It is currently 81°F but feels like 84°F. Our forecast low for this evening is 75°F with a 50% chance of thunderstorms….a few may be severe. Our forecast high for tomorrow is our current “feels like” temperature, 84°F…and even though I’m sure the humidity is going to be fairly high, it will feel cooler than the past several days when our heat index has been 109°F to 115°F. I’m hoping some of the forecast rain materializes this week….after all this heat things are beginning to get a little dusty out.
I am thinking about…change, loss…how it effects everyone….how you deal with it. With the recent loss in our lives I can’t shake the feeling that I’m forgetting something. I know everyone in the family is feeling a bit out of sorts…dealing with it best they know how. My mother has the biggest adjustment of all….I can’t imagine. I am proud of her every single day. Every. Single. Day.
I am glad…I was able to catch the Sal Cincotta workshop on creativeLIVE this past weekend. I attended one of his evening workshops in Charlotte, North Carolina this past April while visiting my father…this past weekend covered much of the same information except he expanded on everything. It was the best workshop I have participated in to date…the best. I missed the live version on Friday and Saturday but was able to catch the re-watch both evenings and I caught most of the live version today. The original airing of the workshop is free and as with all CreativeLive events, you can purchase the entire workshop on video for a nice discounted price during the original airing. I don’t always purchase their workshops but I did this time.
I’m also glad I got my “Walking Dead” fix this past weekend. Yea folks, a marathon running in the background last night and today. I was at my mother’s yesterday so I missed a few of the first few shows (she isn’t a fan )….but I have season one one DVD so I wasn’t upset over that. I was surprised that even though I knew what was going to happen, it had the same effect as the first time I watched it. Two episodes involving the death of main characters were just as moving and exciting as the first time I watched them…and the high anxiety tension was still there with each episode. Now all we need to do is wait until October for season three….it might be doable now since we got the little fix this weekend.
I am going…to be doing some homework using what I learned in the workshop this past weekend. I guess business is that way, it never ends….always learning, always moving forward.
I am hearing…the premier episode of “The Walking Dead” on AMC. They are showing it again in black and white…very powerful …reminds me of the old time horror movies I use to watch growing up. Special effects are supremely better than back in the day, but there is something about black and white that adds to this episode. Along with this, I am hearing the ticking of my many clocks….an otherwise quiet house.
Plans for the week include…working from home on Tuesday….homework on workshop….the seemingly never ending task of catch up at work….maybe catching an elusive sunset this week. When I have been set up to take a sunset image, it hasn’t really been what I was looking for….when I’m driving down the road and no place to pull off, there have been sunsets that rocked my world. Always the way it seems to go isn’t it?
One of life’s little pleasures…sometimes it is hard to pinpoint something….I almost deleted this phrase this week but decided to leave it and and say I’m undecided this week. There are a few things running through my mind that I have previously posted ~ sleeping late….peanut butter and jelly sandwiches…..Runts….fantastic workshops that get you motivated….television programs that leave you wanting more. As I said, undecided.
From my camera…a couple of images I shot a few weeks ago….texture has been added during post processing.
