"I am listening but pretending that I'm not,
like I'm living exclusively in my own private world."

What might it feel like to live in our own private world?
Would we invite friends?
What does private mean anyway?

My private world is noisy,
full of thoughts clamoring to be heard
I'm in charge,
free to acknowledge or ignore
sometimes distracting
here alone,
with my thoughts-listening.

Thinking of all you my sweet friends .
My best to you, wherever you are as the seasons
change and we start anew.
Thank- you for your visits and kind words.

My other locale: "The Way I See It"

I like the vitality - twirling like a category three hurricane - the palette and tones are distnctly yours - unmistakable also via sensibilities.

Another beautiful collage by you. I wish I could be your apprentice. Too bad you live so far away from me. You have much knowledge that I need. You do give me ideas, though. Thank you.

I love your pieces that incorporate words and images and colors. This one is no exception.

I, too, often listen to what's going on or being said around me. The crux for me is not interjecting myself into the action or words, but simply listening and pretending I'm not. It's a challenge!

Hello Ms. Andrea! Thanks for the recent comments and I must say, having seen this piece in person was a treat! I loved our play date (waiting to see you post your piece from that day!). I can't wait to play with you in the sandbox again!

Looking at your images is also like listening.
I am listening into the layers. Listening for the different colors, for what the woman will say, for the sound of that feather blowing in the wind.
I like that you say your private world is noisy and yet all the 'noise' allows me to hear a beautiful quiet.

Just came back from a short trip, and 'journeys' always make me turn inwards for a day or two until I am fully back.

PS In my post the game I was referring to was the Game of the Goose. An old-fashioned board game.
Thanks for making the connection to another 'goose' game!
