I have things to do!
Many many important things!
But do I do them?
I came home from work yesterday, gathered many sticks from the yard, spread them out on the coffee table and sat with luscious new acrylic paints and painted all the sticks.
I drive my own self crazy at times with compulsions.
I have many important things to do but I sit and paint sticks.
Of course on the flip side.......you should see my beautiful sticks!

Well, at least you did something!

I had things to do last night and instead of doing them, I took my laptop to bed and watched a movie. A depressing movie.

I do that all the time. For me, compulsions are a distraction from things that seem too overwhelming (like life, the present, my thoughts) - an escape so I don't have to deal with other people and myself and my responsibilities. I can't face reality long enough to get anything productive done, so I don't. I can't handle success so self-induced failure becomes a way of life. And the more I fail, the worse I feel and the more I need to escape. And the worse my complusions get. And the more my ability to resist them deteriorates. Ugh. It's a vicious cycle.

I love the phrase on your photo today, it sums up how I've felt my whole adult life.

I bet you could manipulate those gorgeous sticks into a lovely work of art.

Take pictures of your beautiful sticks!!!

I loved your mosaic how long ago was it that you posted your pic of that?

Marcia said...

I never do that. I sure wish I did!

Lou said...

I'm with Marcia. I wish I could play more.

I think that it is great that you painted those sticks. All work and no play will drive a Pammie off the deep end.
