It’s been a busy few days with some ups and downs, on the whole things are OK, but things feel a bit flat. Like these leaves, just squashed by footsteps.
I was thinking about my worries and concerns earlier, but now I’ve thought a bit I realise I’m beating myself up before anything has actually happened. I guess it’s because I’m tired. I’ve set myself a lot of things to do, I’m fed up with sitting back and resting, I need to occupy my mind, but I’m not young anymore….. Well this is cheerful!
Talking to the world, is it listening?
I wish I didn’t have such a big mouth, wasn’t so “keen” about things. A couple of times recently I’ve got myself so enthusiastic about something (two seperate things), that I’ve done something, sharing an idea, that I shouldn’t have. It’s made me feel embarrassed and wonder if I’ve done wrong. Maybe I’m not enough of a team player.
Foot in mouth time, worried I might cause problems, hoping I don’t say the wrong thing, expecting something to hit the fan. As they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions?
What a long day, and when I got to the Waiting room gallery for the craft fair today, I realised I’d left my phone at home.
Not good when you like to blog. There were beautiful frosty images of hoar frost on leaves, I could not photograph. Lots of ornaments and cards made by people visiting the free print and crafting workshops. These were very successful and a lot of people enjoyed the experience.
I just tried to blog about it, but I’m so tired I’m falling asleep as I type. I would write more but can’t keep my eyes open.
I typed two or three paragraphs that have disappeared because I just hit the delete key…. Argh!
This is a painting I did from a photo last year. It was in a magazine but I didn’t see who the photographer was. This is one of the things I worry about when using images like this. If I complain about copyright then how can I use others work? But if there is no credit on it can I still use it? That’s why I try and create original art, but it’s not easy. I write ‘after an image or photo by…’ on paintings when I know who they are by….
There are many problems with this. Is there any information anyone can tell me about this I would appreciate it.
I am tired, like a sleeping cat,
Curled up on my chair,
Snuggled with a hot chocolate,
Ready to snooze.
Long day at the fair,
Concentration, talk, natter, chatter.
Sell this, try to sell that.
Be polite, be thoughtful, be considerate.
Now it’s time to rest,
Do my best,
Have to sleep,
What do you do if the parking meter is out of order? No phone number to ring, no other meter to use?
Take a photo of the meter. I’ve blotted out the time and place on this picture. But that’s just because I’m not publishing where I was or what time. But I have it saved on my phone. If I had got a ticket I would have used this to prove the ticket machine was broken. I only stayed there because all other spaces were taken.
Also the council can use meta data to prove my photo was taken on the date and time that I took it and my phones GPS will prove that I haven’t used a photo from a previous date.
Anyway it didn’t happen, I wasn’t fined. But I hope this makes sense.
