I'm definitely one of the 10 . . . I like messy ripped gauze though . . . the messier the better which makes me, what, maybe 1 of 5 people on the planet?

"Bless Us All as we figure out how to go." I shall repeat these words often . . . it's all we can hope for and all we can do.

You can't see but I'm nodding and smiling despite tears in my eyes, and I'm hoping that someone will lay their warm body alongside me if I'm ever in the same place as Fermin.

Perhaps the answer to how long it will take is akin to the question "How long is a piece og string?"

I'm catching up here after a few days out, yes, sometimes I need to do that as well, take time out or off. Sometimes I disengage wth aspects of life so I can enter others more deeply for whole weeks at a time but that's (more than) okay. You share with us such beauty . . . in the second image I saw sand outside the hourglass . . . time turning out on itself.

Glad to see this beautiful EyeDea into the past . . . last night daylight savings ended here so your comment brought forth a tear.

No, I think not just an American problem Diana but one I am content to leave to others to solve. We can all just go on doing what we love creating OUR art. And I think for many like me who are untrained, and don't figure on earning a living from it, it is less of an issue. The more I think of this the more it interests me . . . much of what I do could be considered craft, the making of something useful and/or decorative but when would it become art? It's not training. In my mind it's in the execution, the developing of a concept and originality . . . that, for me, makes art and would make me an artisan. I was with a friend when she told someone she was an artist. Later we discussed it and said she was comfortable with that label because art it what drives her . . . and I think that's a pretty good reason. The quality of her art is quite another thing. I don't think there will ever be agreement aout what art is or who can call themselves an artist so we should perhaps just decide individually and leave it at that.

Great post Diana! I paint, stitch, make, print, construct, carve, write and don't much care whether it's art or whether I'm an artist or just someone who loves to muck around. It's what I do, how I love to spend my time and I don't have much of a choice about it. Whether anyone thinks what I do is art and that I'm an artist, well I don't give a damn because it doesn't change anything for me. I do it primarily for me even if I intend give it away or sell it. Labels are definitely for jars and I loathe labels as much as questionnaires.

Those first days with some real warmth in the sun, glorious! And I would be tempted to move house for wooden floors although I'd still need the sea in my ears.

A stunning slice of colour for you . . . unfurl the cloth and wrap yourself in it a while.

What a wonderful feeling . . . to fly free. As I sit on a sand dune facing the sea, with the sun on one cheek and the wind and the other I can only imagine what it must be like to be out of Time.
