Hey look ... I drew a cool Octopus and I really like it. It's just pen on paper in my sketch book but it needs a new home so if you're interested, get it here: http://bit.ly/byronshorde
Just $25 with free shipping atm.
How has your day been so far? It's hump day and things were a little blah this morning but then paypal hit the bank and life is a bit more cheerful. We don't have to worry about how we're going to buy food for the cats ... as well as the humans and the dog, for at least a week or two. Bills have already been paid and we no longer have to worry about the phone or the electricity being cut off. Life is pretty good atm and there's still 9 hours left!
Today has also been a day of self discovery for both my wife and I ... a day of talking, reflecting and remembering. We are coming upon a season that is very emotional for most people, whether we admit it or not. This season brings feelings of anxiety, depression, joy, fear ... the list could go on for a very long time. I'd lose focus and ramble elsewhere so I'm stopping there. The point is that it's an emotional season because WE let it become that.
For the rest of this blog I'm going to refer to we but it really means ME and other people that might think and act like I do. I'm sure there are others out there like me, just as I'm sure there is life on other planets. So yeah ... anyways. RIGHT?
now i've lost track ... and the shift key on this keyboard doesn't work very well so there is going to be some capitalization errors. If I stop to correct it every time I'm going to lose another train of thought.
Where was I?
Can't remember at the moment, I'll come back to it ...
Oh yeah ... tis the season to over spend and over worry and end up having a lousy time because past experiences have told you this is how life is and this is how your holidays should be and look at all those people over there ... they're having a great time ... why can't you be more like that.
Do you know what I mean?
Does this season freak you out a little?
Do you get sad and depressed that you can't afford to buy your friends and family all the stuff that your friends and family can buy for their friends and family?
and it sucks.
My wife and I are trying to combat these feelings by talking about them ... which is weird but helpful ... and trying to talk about how things were when we were kids and then connecting the dots. We act this way because we were taught to act that way when we were kids ...
it really sounds like psychology bullshit stuff but it makes sense if you open up to the idea of it.
I feel like I'm getting preachy and I'm taking to long on this, I need to get some art done before all my time is up. So ... I'm leaving it at this point. What are your thoughts? Am I sort of on to something or just full of shit? Let me know.
Have a great rest of your day ... no matter what day it is that you're reading this :D
HA! Jimi Hendrix just played in the rotation ... forgot he was in there. BonUs!

it's been a day ... it's really been a fucking shitty day ... at least the start of the day was shitty
After that initial 3 hours it got marginally better. With luck it will get better tonight and be awesome tomorrow. Fingers crossed but don't plan a fucking thing because you know as well as I do that the universe will throw a gigantic fucking monkey wrench at your life if you do. Keep things vague ... follow the direction that life is trying to take you ... make little adjustments as needed to go in the direction you wish to go.
It's like a 'be one with the force' kind of thing ...
or maybe im fucked up and keep fooling myself
how would anyone know for sure?
Hey ... i drew this zombie while feeling rather sorry for myself and trying to snap out of it. I think this zombie got a shitty deal because of my shitty attitude ... better it than me amirite?
