    Finished and satisfied!

    I’ve been working on this jigsaw puzzle- very challenging! I’m going to frame it and hang it.

    Sorry about the flash glare on the corner, but I hope you enjoy the picture. Artwork by Charles Wysicki.

    Had 2 deer stop by to quench their thirst. Love seeing nature, especially up close. #deer , #Nature , #Asthma

    I'm not entirely sure, but...

    I don't know if I'm either very distracted or happy today. Everything from my past, including certain male relationships, seem to be far behind me today. None of it matters now. I feel a complete shift within me. I don't know why, but I feel it. It might change again, but usually when I feel this type of a shift, nothing is the same. But, we shall see. #MentalHealth #Depression #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #change #distraction #happy

    What are you watching on TV right now?

    I admit it. I'm a bit overly obsessed with TV. It's my favorite distraction from a world that often feels overwhelming and unsafe to me. And that certainly has become even more true over the past two and a half years.

    My general go to tends to be documentary and true crime. Very rarely I get into a serial, particularly of the comedy genre. Recent favorites include: the final season of Grace and Frankie, The Staircase, Girls5Eva and The First Lady. Although I'm counting the hours until the release of the next season of Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix. Phil Rosenthal is a giant teddy bear who feels like a big warm hug.

    The Soul Stone (Random Distraction Post)

    Call me morbid, but I was watching Avengers Endgame last night and had the most random thought. What if Clint and Natasha both fall off the cliff? Does the Red Skull get the stone? Man, wouldn't that be a nightmare for the universe!

    What are your thoughts thoughts on this? #distraction #DistractMe #help #Depression

    Repetitive HUMMING while watching movies and TV?

    Whenever I am watching TV or movies, anything except comedy, I continually hum, and have done so all my life. Sometimes I hum an actual tune, but in the vast majority of the time, I hum  just 2 or 3 random notes, which I will repeat for really long periods of time. Sometimes it is in unison with a main note in the background music, or a harmony,  but most times the notes have nothing to do with the music soundtrack. As you can imagine, it distracts and irritates other people to varying degrees. My solution, since I haven't been able to stop it, is just to watch alone. If you still don't understand what I am talking about, imagine sitting next to someone humming the cello notes to the theme from JAWS while you are trying to concentrate on an episode of The Gilmore Girls, or Dateline, or Law & Order.  I've done this my whole life, and it soothes me while at the same time it embarrasses me because I can't stop without starting up again a couple of minutes later, usually unbeknownst to me. I'm not actually looking for a cure for this. I just want to know if I am the only one, and does anybody know why I might do it, or where it comes from? Thanks for your time. Peace.♧

    Grid Painting

    This is a grid of over 40 little spaces for watercolor painting. It took a long time to fill them out. The less and less space I had, the more my perfectionism came out. In the end I just did solid colors in some squares because I needed it to be done! #Depression #Anxiety #Art #distraction #Selfcare #painting #perfectionism
