Stay In The Lines

 From Google Arts and Culture: Art Coloring Book

 ( as a side note, you can print the coloring book too )



Google Art has a "colorbook" that allows you to color color in art.
I chose this self portrait by Elaine de Kooning:



and then I did this:


Elaine de Kooning made abstract and figurative paintings, so I guess that was ok.

Google and Covid and Lessons Learned

 


One of my 'friends' told me that my life was over the day I turned 50.

She told me all I had to look forward to getting ignored by wait staff in resturaunts, 

menopause, oh and 

my 

dog was this wild unhinged beast that needed to be chained and secured at all times.



Also, she believed that Mercury stopped mid-orbit and went backwards and that is why our 

electronics 

failed when "Mercury was in retrograde"

When I would say that none of those things were true- she would NOT grab her phone and 

google her point.

She would wink and tell me to do my research.


The one good thing to come out of Covid-19 is that I no longer feel guilty for having cut 

people out of my life in the past.

Covid-19 taught me, the hard way, that sometimes it's necessary.

Three of my favorite songs:

Three songs that I don't listen to very often, but I still know every single word to each one and when I hear them I get a happy rush.

 I was about 12  when this group of songs were released- so long ago right? It doesn't feel like it.
