Awake in the night

It’s been a while but here I am, awake in the night. I’ve been dreaming about painting! Yep, hand painting v digital. In my dream and then when I was awake I was thinking about creating a black background with pastel flowers on it. I was thinking if I use the digital it maybe too fine and if I use the traditional method it might be too heavy.

I think I am having withdraws symptoms from hand painting 😳

Life is all about balance, yet sometimes, okay most times I seem to be more to one side than the other. I have never been what I would describe as a balanced person. 😏

I justify my actions by my star sign, Aquarius . My youngest grandson Charlie is one too and it amuses me no end when my daughter says that he drives her mad! That he is just like me in his ways. πŸ€—

I’m not one for reading horoscopes but I do think that people have certain characteristics depending on when they were born which denotes their star signs! Hmm πŸ€”

I remember when I used to visit a lady who was an astrologer, she was great! I’m an Aquarian with Capricorn rising πŸ™ƒ With, she told me. “The ability to be a great writer” hmm, me a great writer. All my planets are formed in a line screaming, write, write, write. She never said anything about painting though πŸ€” Or waffling πŸ€ͺ

I think I’m hungry, not for knowledge but for something to eat, that’s why I’m awake, or maybe my soul needs nourishment? Are you still reading this quality piece of writing?

You are?

Yes! Hmm I wonder what star sign you are. πŸ˜‰


  1. I hope you get some good night sleep soon, or do you take naps? I woke up anywhere from 2: 45 to 4:45 a.m. for weeks, then woke up at 4:45 am for many days. I couldn’t do too much during the day. Finally, my cancer specialist gave me s prescription for my nerves. I slept through the night last night. I’ll take it for a while and then decide whether I want to continue to take it.

          1. Thank you, Cheryl. I’m taking another med to help my nerves. I tried to get rid of it but it’s habit forming (additive). When I took this new med last night, I reduce the other one to half, I could go to sleep. Hopefully I could get rid of the first one and take the second one that is not additive!

  2. Judging by the poem you just wrote I think the astrologer was right! I am a Virgo but I get blamed for my granddaughter Saeda’s behavior who is an Aries. My mom was an Aquarian. I do think some traits follow the signs.

  3. I try to keep things short but it’s easy to get carried away….ahem….that’s why limited word challenges are good for me. I started a story and it was almost a thousand words. I had to take off the challenge header on the post because they wouldn’t allow it. Dang controllersπŸ˜‚
