This charcoal soap has been photographed for 3 days straight, I can not capture it. It is really a neat earthy looking organic Zenny item, but I listed it any way with the cruddy pic. I just can't get it with the light I have.
A new banner! I really hope I stick with this one, I have switched at least a thousand times.
Well this has been a ps from this morning. It was a busy day, but I got a lot done. Love to be productive!
Here's the link to my shop for a quick look...www.paradiseessentials.etsy.com they are yummy, I wish you could smell the blue one.
I found this on another blog as I was doing my daily rounds this morning.
"She couldn’t stand it. The pain. The guilt. It was eating her up inside. She didn’t mean for it to happen. It just did. It was an accident. She cheated. She was sorry. He said he couldn’t look at her. She couldn’t look at herself either. It hurt too much. She’s still sorry. This is why I love Art. It invokes certain feelings and thoughts that nothing else could. As Picasso once said: “a painting speaks for itself.” To me this speaks of betrayal and pain. A self loathing and regret that results from an action that can never be undone"
There was an art piece that this person did the critique on but I was more impressed at the blog owners interpretation of that art. They brought up so many many points that just struck me full on.
1. I tend to agonize over every last detail, I don't compromise. I labor, and belabor until it speaks to me that it's done. It can be an art piece, jewelry, soap, perfume, WHATEV. So that blog owners point of Picasso's quote was well taken, everything that we do will stand alone one day...it has to speak for itself. Validation.
2. Wow, then he gets really heavy, he interpreted the piece in light of an affair. I have never had an affair, but my life has been a series of 'fatal' events that cannot be undone and I have suffered much pain and felt the sting of betrayal. It is not always unfaithfulness between spouses. We are subject to betrayal in business, in recreation, where ever our heart is.
I want to dwell on forgiveness. That is the antidote to betrayal. Its hard to separate forgiveness from condoning the act, we are not meant to be doormats, but we are not meant to fester either. Self loathing and regrets are the fruit produced from betrayal for some people. Other's are so narcissistic, they will never see the other's pain because the shield of self righteousness is an ample protector.
You really have to practice forgiveness...it needs to be applied to the gaping wound. Then one day you find that that wound is less and less painful. On the path, there are still stumble pebbles, I have found I always need to apply the forgiveness balm.
How do you apply your forgiveness balm? I have to use the words of God, I can't just 'oh well' it away.
Take a look at the post I was looking at...here <---
She looks like she has a migraine to me...
