Not the Best Start

 So, my Email program is messing up this morning and so far I can only access a small part of my Emails. Since I usually spend three hours on my Emails every morning, this is putting a serious hole in my morning. Fortunately I can update my blog/LJ in other ways, so I can still stay in communication and write my daily thoughts.

Writing in my journal
 I love to share my thoughts. They are not
earthshaking, though.

I have often said that I write my E-journal for myself, and that is true. I have followers from around the world, which I find flattering, but I'm not saying anything earthshaking, and often my stream of consciousness thoughts are not even gramatically correct. I write it because it helps me to put my thoughts in order for the day. I also write it to take my personal shout out to the world to let it know that I am still alive and participating in the endless cycle of life; my own few steps in the dance of life. I share my E-journal on two sites - Blogspot and Live Journal. I have different followers on each service, and I get different comments. I am amazed that people read my little journal, and even more amazed that I get commentary from people. And so, today, on this day that has started out so frustrating, I am taking this time to tell all of you how very much I appreciate your reading and commenting on my E-journal. You honor me and I am humbled by your time.

Holiday Deadlines
Time is ticking for Holiday Gifts.

My list of things to do on my studio day today is huge (as usual), but I did get my first batch of holiday gifts packed up and ready to ship yesterday. I want to do a little bit more for each package - a poem or small story about the gift that will be included with it. But they are almost ready to mail and should be able to hit the mail by Monday or Tuesday at the latest. I started work on the Staff of Ra last night with my small Wacom tablet. I honestly don't know how I could do my more elaborate etching work without my tablet - probably one of the best $100 I ever spent, many years ago. I almost have the front of the headpiece finished and can start on the back later tonight. Progress....
