I tried to use their tips for inserting a clock here so everyone could easily know what time it is in Vancouver, but I couldn’t make it work. Alas.

Watching Paint Dry

It occurred to me the other day as I was starting 4 little acrylic canvases, that “watching paint dry” is a vastly under-rated activity. I wanted to make it like a “wash” with gradations – and kept adding bits of paint and then tilting the canvas and watching it pool or not. Then adding another colour or (in this case a feather-print with lots of paint on them.)  Watching the paint dry was endlessly fascinating, imho.

What Would Sarah Palin Say?

I actually googled the other day “god sarah palin quotation” because I wanted to be sure I had the verb correct. But she really did say that when god opens a door, she “ploughs through.” Not walk, not step, certainly not saunter. Plough. agricultural imagery.
So I find myself rather fascinated with what will Sarah say next? I find myself in conversations, for instance about photographs taken and conjecture about the possibility of life on planets outside of our solar system. Also an SFU professor has conjectured that autism and schizophrenia are opposite poles and could be treated by encouraging behaviour closer to the other pole – sociabiity for autism and lack of sociability for schizophrenia. What would Sarah say about that?
And is the “hair down” the new look? And why am I (and seemingly others) so interested?

Getting to Know Me, Getting to Know All About Me…

I’m leading a workshop this weekend using the Myers-Briggs Step II – so thought I’d re-do the questionnaire.

I always score fairly close on the Extroversion-Introversion polarity. I’m an extrovert who likes my privacy and time to ponder. A friend of mine (an introvert) was not surprised to learn that most of my friends are Introverts.
