Life is But A Dream………..

Standard

In today’s world, with bad news pummeling us from every news media source, retreating to an imaginary world seems oh, so appealing………

We creative types can lose ourselves in our art, in our quilting, in our writing, in our thoughts………..

To wake up unstressed by the world’s latest trauma, would be a blessing for all, wouldn’t it?

Not at all to lessen the trauma and the people involved in that particular upset, but a little less stress in my life would be welcomed.

And some would say, what kind of stress could you possibly have- I have a roof over my head, no natural disasters have destroyed my home, there is food on the table, home canned goods in the pantry, and relative good health all around.

I should sit back, shut up, and enjoy the serenity……….

But, within the confines of this seemingly bucolic living, stress seeps in. Whether from the outside world, or out of my own mind, it’s ever present!! LOL

Busy hands and mind keep the brain relaxed.

The sign off in every one of my emails says “Life keeps me crazed, art keeps me SANE(R)”

If it wasn’t SO true, I would use it as my tagline!!!LOL

Overactive imagination is my downfall, but it is also my salvation………

I know my horses let out their wings every night after midnight, and pull them in before dawn……… just like I KNOW my teddy bears get up after I go to sleep, and have a party all night long ♥

I also “know” that those darn bears have invited the field mice in , to join their nightly parties- but the mice won’t leave!!!! LOL

No, I am NOT nuts (well, I am pretty sure I’m not) …….just finding a way to relieve the stress sailing in nonstop, from the outside world.

What are your methods, for alleviating stress? Art, meditation, yoga, long walks in the woods, or staring at the night sky pondering the universe?

Feel free to share, so I , and others, know we are NOT alone in the madness………….

About ooglebloops

I am possessed of a creative brain with no direction or set path! Most of that creative activity comes right from the brain thru the fingertips to a keyboard or pen. Now that we have moved to our dream place in the country, that manic creative urge explodes in so many directions, I can't keep up!! Sooo, this blog is an effort to channel the creative urge and display the results of a scattered mind- be it life on the farm, photography, my gardens, or the written word. (My past art-full creative endeavors can be found on:http://www.artfullyooglebloops.blogspot.com) NOW-I am actively posting on www.artfullyooglebloops.wordpress.com Any photos or art work on either of my blogs, are mine and mine ALONE (unless otherwise indicated!). Please do not borrow, lift, use, post or display anywhere without my permission. Thank you! Welcome all!!!!
