Canada Day and doodads.

Hey there, it's holiday Monday, 2 days after Canada Day. Happy "day off" I don't know if many people know or really care why it's a national holiday, only that it's a day off of work. Can you imagine what it would be like if EVERY day was a day off? I mean, imagine you're doing something that you really love doing, it doesn't interfere with laundry, relaxation, workin' on "the house" or whatever you do for fun. If you're an artist-type, imagine creating Art every day and enjoying it. Wow what a perfect world. The only way to get there is to think about it every day. Think about what you want as if you already have it. I'm not talking "big screen tv...big screen tv..." That's just a doodad. It'll just get you further into debt and what'll you have to show for it...a piece of electronic equipment that is obsolete the moment you step out of the store you bought it from. Everyone's trying to sell you that piece of comfort and you'll never find it looking for it in a doodad. I'm talking major life altering thinking... "I'm a successful artist and I spend much of my spare time learning, enjoying and growing as an artist" (That's where I'm headed. You may have a different path) It's cool to get the occasional doodad as long as it doesn't distract you from your true path.

Hey Jeff - Awesome blog! I'm so glad it is catching on ;).
It's funny that you blogged about the eternal day off - I was just thinking that myself this weekend. Harry and I are always complaining about the constant pressure to "keep up with the Jones" and how it is so easy to lose sight of our true goals. I'm right there with you on the path to pure artist living! keep up the blog - I'll be sure to visit often.
