I haven’t posted since last November. During that time I took “The Artist’s Way” writing course and some drawing lessons. Hopefully this will help me write better blogs. Also during this time I read “The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt. There is a passage from the book that hints at the link between Art and the subconscious.
Dreams, Art and Music are linked to and connect directly with our subconscious mind. Jonathan Haidt in his two books “The Happiness Hypothesis” and “The Righteous Mind” compares the relationship between the conscious rational mind and the subconscious mind to an elephant and rider. In Zen Buddhism this concept is artfully presented in the “Oxherder Pictures”.

This is my cooking shot for Wednesday morning. It was my second try at Tim Ferriss’ “Perfect Poached Eggs” l Like Vince Lombardi says you got to learn the basics. They really were perfect (almost). Learning how to use WordPress to do this blog is a little like my cooking learning— wrong wrong wrong right wrong wrong right etc.
Also, I re-started my “Journal” today after a 3 month writer’s block. I will use my journal which I keep in and edit with Curio, as a scrapbook for interesting things to organize and post here.
Me a cook? I’m studying Tim Ferriss’ “The 4-Hour Chef”.
So far I’ve had fair luck and some enjoyment in the process.
I’ve also bought some of the “gear” he recommends which I’ll make a gallery of and post soon.
This is where Jackson and I walk and talk
He checks for trash and small animal trails
He also like to dump on the neighbor’s lawn
Which would you use to tie a cowbell?
