In Memory of Sharon Mary Miller-Dutton

Today was a celebration of life ceremony for my stepmother Sharon, who recently passed away from cancer. She had been doing quite a bit better, the turn downward was pretty recent and sudden.

I am thankful my father got the time he did with her, and she will be missed, but forever Loved.

Given that we live some distance away, my wife, son, and I weren’t able to make it to the celebration of life, but my family (siblings) who were able to were gracious enough to Livestream and record it so we wouldn’t miss out.

Below is an artistic rendering I made in her memory:

Morning Notes

Good morning, Dear Ones.

I am thrilled with the wins I’ve been experiencing lately in my life. The excellent things keeping my focus also have been therapeutic as well. I don’t have a long share this morning, but I haven’t smiled as much as I am lately, in ages.

I am so thankful to the One from Whom all blessings flow.

Lemony Snicket’s & The Mandela Effect

Earlier, I experienced the “Mandela effect” in regards to Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” movie. I’ll be honest, a great deal of the movie wasn’t how I remembered it, but in my defense, I hadn’t watched it in ages until last night.

The Mandela effect, a form of memory error, can occur for a lot of reasons.

Maybe I didn’t pay as close attention to it as I thought in the first place, or maybe my memory was simply skewed due to the intervening time, or a combination of both.

Great Update!

I’ve been on a roll sharing creative content on a brand new (to me) app. A friend of mine introduced my wife to it & she invited me. I’ll have my link to it up in the near future (once my account gets verified.) So far I’m loving it, and not only can I post art, but I can post photos, videos, and snippets of my poetry as well. It’s like the perfect creative outlet, if anything can be called such a thing.

Sickening, Tragic News

I just heard about a young kid basically, (only 18) who was killed for his conservative politics. Whatever happened to reasoned discussion and debate?

I hate how divided my country has become, I’m sick to death of it, honestly. According to the murderer, his victim was a right wing extremist.

I’ve been around long enough to know that word/phrase gets thrown around far too easily these days though.

Today’s Notes

What’s new friends? It’s been a great day today. I had a low carb coffee and a bunless Whopper for brunch. I feel like I’ve got more energy than I’ve had in ages.

Also, been hanging out with my wife while my son is in school. It’s about time to go get him.

In other notes: I had the shortest conversation I’ve ever had with my father earlier. It was only like 10 minutes or so. He updated me on how his wife is doing, she’s okay overall, despite still having some med issues.

As you all know if you follow my niche art blog, I continue to be on a roll there. Anyway, I don’t want to ramble too much, so I’ll go ahead and wrap this up.

Belated Afternoon Notes

It has been a very chill day. I have a few new art pieces to share to my niche art blog, which I will in a while. Earlier, I watched “Home Improvement” while I was eating a late breakfast with my family.

I’m back on low carb, and also drinking a lot more water as well.

My wife is taking my son to a picnic thing for his grandma’s work soon, so I’m sure he’ll enjoy that. I don’t know what else is going on today, guess we’ll just take it as it comes.

Morning Notes

I’ve been on a roll with the new art, and the options with the new program seem endless. I even have at least one person interested in a possible buy, so if that goes through it’ll be awesome.

In other notes, my wife has an appointment shortly, and then we’ll go have lunch together. Currently, we are watching shows and I am trying to think of new design ideas.

I’m not sure what all else the day will bring, but hopefully great things.
