New influences and ways to numb my mind

 Today I was on the sofa all day and had a marathon of Bonanza and Gunsmoke.
 And I read some Jackson Pollock. Wonder how this will influence my work if I ever get back to my studio, haha! I forgot how much I used to love these westerns. I wanted to be a cowboy(cowgirl) so bad when I was a little girl. Right now I feel like I fell off my horse and he nearly stomped me to death. 
Thanks for all the comments and emails, I am mending nicely and numbing my mind with Pollock, Marshal Dillon and natural herbs and elixers :)

Dang. It sounds like you're not quite mended. BUT! nice to hear you know how to vegetate! Good to do sometimes. Maybe you'd like this post I just read? http://toni.org/2012/07/16/civil-war-days/

Thanks Dennis!
Hey Susan, Wesley went to one of those Civil War things at the battleground in Greensboro when she was a kid and loved it. Cool pics!

I hope you start feeling better before TV ruins your brain. It is nice to spend some time just chilling now and then. Feel better.

Thanks Lori, my brain is pretty numb right now, but I am just about tired of it. I don't know how people that are really lazy do it. I need to be DOING something!

That's where knitting and spinning come in for me. :)Glad you are on the mend!!

Tracey Broome said...

Yeah, knitting would be good, wish I had some yarn! Maybe I'll send someone out for some tomorrow, that would be nice...... Good idea:)

I read that book YEARS ago... lugged it to the beach...900 pages... you will learn everything about his whole life and the whole life of everyone he came into contact with sice BIRTH... very important... I started Lee Krasner on my ipad/kindle but got distracted by other awesome downloads...

bonanza and gunsmoke--- lately I've been wanting to watch the muppets. Loved that show and those movies! praying for you- and wishing you complete healing. peace--

Tracey Broome said...

Judi, I know! I skipped the first chapter, just not that interested in a history lesson from the 1800's! But the rest is pretty good. I picked this up at the thrift store awhile back and just now getting to it.
Hey Amy thanks for the prayers, you and my mom :)
Yes, The Muppets! That's how I learned what little Spanish I know, haha!

I always loved Festus. Sounds like you're using your downtime in exactly the right way.
