Wow, I've been super busy!
I was meditating every day until I started working! I miss the meditating but I'm enjoying my substitute teaching in a special day class. I have to drive an hour to get there, but I only work half day and that is nice.
I like to work with background noise; today the background was the Arts program on public television (the local station.) Every once in a while they have a segment that is really, really interesting.
Today I saw this fabulous dance by the Russian Gymnastics Team; it's called "Dresses".
Another good one I saw was a silent film, called Magic Bricks.
Finally, I saw a scene from an opera called Electra. I don't know operas, but after seeing this scene where Electra is reunited with her brother, I definitely want to know more about this piece by Strauss. The set was haunting and amazing! It reminded me of a Dali painting.

I'm still able to catch some good documentaries and Indie movies. Most recently I enjoyed Winter's Bone and Lbs. Both very, very well done films.
On the documentary side I watched Ayn Rand and the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged. Amazing documentary that I'll have to watch a couple times. It is very helpful to me in terms of deciding who to vote for in the presidential election. The best quote from the film, I think, is this:
I have also been working on my new website, MonaRAEbeads.com There is a lot of work still to do, but please go check it out and subscribe there for 15% off your next order!
I have found time to make new beads! They haven't been listed yet; you get first dibs! Let me know if you're interested in any of these. I'm also planning to list some new beads in my shop today.
