I journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises, and
I’m again participating in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
I write to a timer, 15-20 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!
The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “for/fore/four.”
Four holidays that are excuses for irresponsible behavior:
New Year’s Eve, St. Patrick’s, Cinco de Mayo, and
the Fourth of July, Independence Day.
The first three you can generally avoid the idiots,
which I call amateur night for drunks —
stay away from bars and don’t drive the streets.
But the Fourth is my least favorite holiday.
We have massive fire issues and our stupid stupid state is a forest fire waiting to happen.
*oh wait, that already did, with lives lost in the Multnomah fire*
For almost a decade we’ve stood vigil over museum artifacts.
In our neighborhood, everyone leaves and it becomes a place for dragsters and fireworks.
Two years running we stayed up all night at the business,
watching skyrockets fired on the corner by drunk assholes…
Calling the police all night did no good. They don’t show up, ever…
Last night at 7pm as we were leaving a cherry bomb exploded, foreshadowing the mess.
I don’t think this is what our forefathers envisioned…
So I hate it. Hate it.
We have so much to lose, between our forests
(which provide a good dose of oxygen to everyone) and our business
and the lives of those who have to clean up after these irresponsible assholes.
Rant for the day.
For the rules, go to Linda’s blog; feel free to join the fun!
As my Patreon supporter, you will have
access to some content not on this website,
sneak previews, goodies, discounts on classes.
I teach architectural sketching,
art journaling (art+writing), creativity, watercolors.
That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
