There are days when the internet makes me want to scream as I fight for the ability to do things online. I think sometimes People think they should CONTROL others not only with money but also with threats, lack of education, and by refusing to address certain social issues. I still am not fond of people though as I teach my own children, there is little choice in the current world we live in other than tolerating those around us short of taking ourselves out of the scene. I have been with my current internet subscriber for about six or seven years. While the democrats want change and the republicans want rich people to be happy, I just want my life to be less of a circle jerk. I don't care any more if the White House can not budget their money as they apparently have the means to print more and are doing so. I don't care if I ever Vote again as my vote does not really matter, its is a ploy to get me to voice my opinion. I still do not believe in Gods. I believe in Mans ability to screw up just about everything he touches. I do believe in energy. I believe in the trees and the air and the movement of the universe like a fine wond clock and you know what happens to a clock if you wind it up too tightly. The universe is the same way only it doesn't take drugs to chill it out.
Arg2you is my fallback name for all things- VFL is not closed yet not selling anything of monatary value ie Its not about money for me, though a million dollars could go along way it would not solve any of the issues we as a people have- I could be wrong however for myself I am not- Still working on ideas- I will let you know.
VFL was an idea. The idea that while some say no child left behind, there are still many children which are. Some schools and educators want to put the children in to classes where they learn at a slower pace. This is not the correct way to handle it in my opinion. Each child learns differently and many of the children today can barely print and some schools are now not even teaching cursive writing.
The idea was that I would attempt to raise not money but the idea that there are other ways of teaching children to read. Money money money is what they say makes the world go round but I see money as a tool to use much like a car or a computer or anything else. I see people making things happen more than money. I could be wrong.
I am not really sure at this time what I am going to do with my site. Vases were and are fun for me however I am not great at selling as much as making. I am thinking about what I am going to do. Dont you love it when people brain storm?
Right now, I am working on jewelry, painting, and a few other things.
For the past year I have been doing nothing really but attempting to learn about making different styles of art through online classes which I get no credit for other than the fact that I enjoy them and I learn new things not only about the arts but about myself.
Everyone wants to sell you something but I dont because if I tried to sell you something I made then it would not be fun for me any more and it would be about making you happy because you would be my customer. It would not be about making something because its pretty but making it because you pay me to do so. It would be about money.
Money is what it takes for me to make the things I do as I have to buy the materials and I do not get them wholesale though sometimes I get discounts because I buy in bulk as I hate to spend more for little when I can buy more for less. Does that make sense?
Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I am thinking still about what I am going to do. My husband wants me to sell my creative works, my daughter wants to wear them and I just like making things, while my son just wants to know if I am playing a computer game and if so which one.
I left facebook last year because of my Cousins inability to have consideration for his family- I do not wish to find out that my grandmother has died online. I think if I did I would kill someone.
Sometimes the things we create continue on like emerson and shakespear while other things disapear into the sea- I like to think reguardless of where these things end up that at some point someone will enjoy them other than myself for what they are.
I have a lot more things I have created that I have not added in this gallery because I did not put them all into one nice neat file- and or because I felt like they were not really good enough for your attention. Not like any of these are either however this is a display of what I have been doing on and off over the course of 2012.
I have also been making blue sand as I think the amount I need for the vases costs way too much and I have yet to find it in bulk. I give vases away all the time.
I hope you will consider my thoughts though fluffy as they are-
Can your children read? Can your children write? Can they do other things? Can they hold a hammer or a screwdriver? Do they know plants? Or Animals?
While I am not a teacher nor am I a computer guru nor am I really an artist persay, I think its important that we consider these questions daily. I use games to teach my kids and I use art to express my feelings more than not. I enjoy all types of things and sometimes do more than I should and or less than I should depending on the subject.
I hold no degrees other than a simple highschool diploma from the 80s- And yet I still like to think that though I am a simpleton compared to many, I have value not only in my childrens eyes but in the eyes of the world. Even without a sheet of paper-
I am not fond of people though at times I like conversation. I really like trees. I am not sure why.
Sailboats are nice too though a houseboat would be really really awsome dont you think? ..dreams.. what we are made of.
Dare to Dream
