My Little World V. The Wide World


I sleep inordinate amounts of time. I enjoy sleeping, but I miss the hours I lose. I put Print Shop back in here today so I can make the thank you cards for the gifts I received "retiring" from my "job". I am sincerely touched by the warmth expressed and I do want them to know. I already sent one, but the goofy woman wouldn't put it up. It has one of the pictures on here--the one with the somewhat annoyed woman either getting down for a nap, or being disturbed while in one. The woman thought the picture was sexual. I couldn't see it, and it was my thank you note. If I thought she would have interpreted the picture that way, I would have used a different one. So now, I have to send a different one and in the meantime, I had to reformat my computer again. And put Print Shop back in again. I must have four versions of that program. I want to make painterjayne bumper stickers with it. Just "Philly's Finest Artist, Painterjayne" www.painterjayne.com If anybody reading this wants one, tell me. If anybody ever reads this. I guess the point is I have the materials for the bumper stickers, but with all this in and out of Print Shop, I don't know if I have the software. The last program didn't have it, hence the additional one. I think the old one did have the program. Wish I'd made them when I had the chance. (About four years ago.)
I did put all my cds in a plastic container, separating out all the music. Now I can see the cd programs I still have and know how many I've lost. Amazing how I can clearly remember things from just months or even weeks ago that simply evaporated in this very room. Since all the shelves have been cleaned by Moon kitten, it's pure magic. (Moon needs the shelves to climb and be a happy cat.)
All I talk about is the cat and life in the house... I'm very aware of the world outside; I read the N.Y. Times, sometimes the Philly Inquirer, magazines, and some in-depth news programs. I worked in a political office which was a good education in how our government works. It works despite politics, I think, because almost always politics is about getting power and money to oneself, one's family and friends, getting more, and staying there. Politicians don't do anything for anyone else unless there's something in it for them. That's why all those people are dying in Dur fur, and drowned in New Orleans. Plus race. No one will ever convince me that would have happened if they were Caucasian. Then again, there was Serajavo --the city where WWI started-- where everybody just stood by and couldn't care less that snipers were shooting kids in the street.
Do you think the US would even look at the Arabs if they didn't have oil? Like we would have started a war with Iraq if they didn't. Do we blink at Central America with their dictators and mass murders?
Well, that's a waste of finger exercise. I'm glad I'm here, in my little house, being me, in America, with a decent mayor, good governor, dunce president who's sending kids off to their deaths and killing innocent civilians to grab oil and make money for his friends. The US is basically going to hell, or appears to be, economically, militarily, and morally. No, I don't mean Christian stuff; I mean big business stealing all the money and benefits and leaving people with no pensions, housing, heat, or medicine. And murdering people in far-off countries for their own aggrandizement. And not caring about others. Or, yes, the earth.

Oh bosh! The woman's batty! Your paintings are just so alive! Even the sexual ones seem to just be life & loving it,....True art can't be porn, it's an a expression of life, sex is part of life, no sex-no life,..where would we be without it?

The woman, I think because she didn't react the way they expected her to, was given a very hard time at work. She eventually sued, they lied, and she lost. She's gay and I think maybe they picked up the vibes. But I think her reaction had everything to do with being guarded. They're still horrible to her and they'll continue until she finally retires in maybe eight years or so. It was a creepy place, but I'm retired, married, and just didn't give a damn. Different perspective, and besides, the picture really wasn't sexual. In addition, you're right. She is batty. But she was one of the few actual human beings in that place. Is that a conundrum?(sp?)
