Art Farm of a Country Woman

Painting My World with My Heart~

horses and rain

Yep, it’s raining!
And it’s supposed to keep raining for a couple of days more.
While not going crazy over what we cannot change, it is quite nice to see gray, wetness.
Until it’s not so nice anymore… inevitable as well.

Courtyard Garden Roses

My roses are all mixed up about what time it is. Time to sleep or time to wake… ?
There have been freezing nights and days of 80 degrees.
I “hope” they stay asleep as I am not ready to take on my garden just yet.

Spring is pink jasmine!

As some of my “old”-faithful readers know, I am far from the peaceful, sane, friendly, loving woman you might presume, given what you read/see here.
I am, in fact, a crazy woman with “multi-faceted” moods to match.
I’ve been blessed with all kinds of nutty!


We won’t talk about the body that isn’t at all what it might be, given the supplements I consume, the lifestyle I live, the reasonably decent diet. Blah blah.

I’ve been absent because I haven’t had anything to say.
Life hasn’t been going well.
I don’t make myself be someone I’m not and if I’m not feeling like writing, sharing, whatever… I don’t.
I don’t go online at all.

Many carry their phones (and use them) everywhere, quite appalling most of the time.
They keep tablets handy that connect to the lovely world out there.
Apparently few want to feel separate.

I am of the belief that separation is inevitable.
That perverse connectivity only breeds a false sense of belonging.
With that comes perhaps a false sense of security?
Falseness of any kind, illusion of any kind, makes me wiggly.
Uncomfortable beneath my skin.


I learned years ago to NEVER share anything online I might regret.
I learned the hard way not because someone advised me to beware.
Just try to erase that ill-timed post, tweet, comment, no?

Mi Bella

If I’m in a dark place, the last thing I do is write a blog post.
I know if I do, I am going to publish it only to pull it.

I doubt that explains much. That’s OK… I think it explains enough.

I will return when I’m in a better place than I currently am.
That could be later today. Or never again.
Impermanence is a fact.
At least it is in my world.

    I have been thumbing through Walden and thought that you would like this thought.

    “I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.” Henry David Thoreau, Walden

      Thanks kindly, Norbert…. I hope my like thingy works now. They are so bloody important! Why else blog? Said tongue firmly planted in cheek, of course. 🙂

  3. With you in spirit. Stress kills and solitude is devoutly to be wished. Have you ever read Anthony Storr’s Solitude (UK)? Well worth it.

      Good eve, About to turn off the light when I saw your comment. It is nice to meet another who feels as I do. We seem to be rare! No, I haven’t but certainly I will look it up. Thank you. ♥

  4. All kindsa nutty is good – we nuts put the variety in the box of chocolates that Mr Gump told us is like life!

      Well, ain’t that the truth! Thanks, sweets! xxx

    Dunno what those women are wearing, but its scary…. But the roses, I relate to. NOT because of the 80 degree days, but simply because the external is messing with the internal and it’s flipping confusing.
    As always, do what you need to do for YOU dearheart. It’s that simple even if it changes every five minutes.

      Well thanks, I always do yet rarely am quiet for long…. I don’t think anyway! Crazy weird weather now here. We’ve had about 10″ so far and not done yet. I guess the old saying about when it rains, it pours must be true. Sheesh…. Enough already.. X

  6. I remembered that you were in a drought. I’m happy to see rain for the growing things and the animals. It is nice to see the ponies on greener footing! I agree with you absolutely. Solitude is essential to my sanity. I have never “liked” so much stuff in my entire life as I’ve “liked” since I arrived at WP! 🙂 It seems to be a social convention here. Actually, I have an intense dislike of the whole concept. How easy to scroll down one’s readers clicking “Like” without giving a tinker’s damn about any of it…
