This is a Mose Tolliver painting called Magician Lady. We saw it at the High Museum. Mose Tolliver was self taught and usually painted with house paint on old boards. After a leg injury, he couldn't walk well, so he decided to paint to deal with his pain. I love his title for one of his paintings: Jick Jack Suzy Satisfying Her Own Self.
Yesterday I had to watch some videos about having a colonoscopy because I'm having a colonoscopy this week. The video format for medical preparedness gets on my last nerve. The computer kept telling me about risks. Every time it would describe a risk, I had to click on a button so that someone somewhere would have evidence that I've acknowledged that I could lose an eye or be paralyzed in both feet. I found the whole thing annoying. It was hard to believe that the computer video gal cares about me and my well being. Think it through, medical community.
Today I read about bullet journals. I may make my new moleskin calendar into a bullet journal this year. It's a creative endeavor that also promotes productivity.
Everyone's saying that resolutions are dumb, but I kind of like them. I am already thinking about my sankalpa for 2018. It may be something like I do whatever I want. Or ... I stay true to my whole self. Or possibly... I am a magician lady. Any of these sankalpas could do the trick. I'll play around with them this month. Happy New Year, Good Friends.
