Catching Up With Busy-ness

 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.

 So, if you are looking for a little background noise, and art, check out the Classic Arts Showcase for information on airing stations near you!

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:

"When you see that trading is done not be consent but by compulsion, when you see that in order to produce you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing, when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods but in favors, when you see that men get richer by graft and by pole than by work and your laws don't protect you against them but protect them against you, you may know that your society is doomed." 

I have also been working on my new website, 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.
