takes her job seriously. all night until 3am (when she went under the bed, finally exhausted) growl growl bark bark. that's the part i hate about husband being gone...diva becomes the Guardian of the House. unfortuately, her tuning is set a little sharp, and she barks at the slightest hint of provocation - real or imagined. if a flea wakes up 3 blocks away and goes for a drink of water...BARK. if a bird in a nest in a tree in Rochester shuffles it's feathers ....BARK. needless to say she takes her job seriously and is not to be silenced by a mere human with under-developed hearing who cannot hear or see the Very Real Dangers she is scaring away. so at a groggy 5am, when my spirit called me to awaken and drink in the beauty of a fresh new day, my mind told it to SHUT UP YOU! finally at 6am, the mind relented or gave up, and i went downstairs to drink in a fresh new cup of coffee, and plot the day. i find if i plot the day, the day has less chance of plotting against me. unless it's a plot-less day...no obligations, errands, etc. just hoist the sail and see where the wind takes me. and pray for good wind. speaking of which...nah...i'm not going to dip my fork into yesterday's leftovers. i have my Inner Peace CD going...it just sets the right tone...very calming (just as the name implies) and i usually follow this up with Mary J. Blige. this routine signals my brain that it's work time in the studio. usually by the first 3 notes of "Work That Thing Out Out" i am indeed working it out with some rusty metal. today would be an excellent day for a bathrobe day, but it's off to the photog to get some shots of my work done. another CD due for another juried show. how exciting is this path! hopefully i can get something going here in the morning, to continue on this afternoon after running around. and diva is sorely in need of attention. she was alone all yesterday, and got half a walk and less than half my attention all evening. she got noticed all night though. grrr. so i'm off for a refill! i wish you each an extra special magical day!
