opening your mind

July 10th, 2010

This may be the easiest of all the exercises geared towards sparking your creativity and opening your mind Digitizing.

Look for the moon every night without looking at the calendar to see if there will be a moon or what type it will be. What you find each time should be a mystery and a surprise. Never will you see the same moon twice. In fact, clouds and other weather phenomenon will change what you see from minute to minute, like a gigantic kaleidoscope embroidery Digitizing.

Children find this especially enjoyable, and all it costs you is a second to say, “Hey guys, have you seen the moon tonight?” It’s a habit for me whenever I’m outside, but if I do go out, I take a peek and so should you embroidery designs.

For this exercise

July 9th, 2010

Do you think they have complex minds? I do, but I also think they are wide open minds, always dreaming vector conversion about what is around the corner. I doubt they theorize about dogs chasing their cars or the possibility of a tractor being in their way, but stars, black holes, galaxies and new universes.

For this exercise, lay at night and look at the stars, wonder about life

Outside our universe embroidery designs. Look past the big dipper and deep into space. Imagine you’re looking through a powerful scope like the Hubble. Open your mind and pretend you can see Upsilon Andromedae’s planets in orbit. Are we there yet?

the possibility to sustain

July 9th, 2010

Recently astronomers discovered three Jupiter-size digitizing planets orbiting the nearby star known as Upsilon Andromedae. This discovery marks the first known system of multiple planets around a sun-like star other than our own solar system. I use the term “nearby” loosely, since Upsilon Andromedae is known to be 44 light years from our sun vector conversion. Not exactly in our backyard is it?The outer planet orbiting at a distance of Mars from our Sun, may have several large Earth-like worlds orbiting it. This would make the satellites, if any, a good place for life to arise. It’s much too early to tell anything for sure and any embroidery designs speculation is based on the possibility to sustain carbon-based life like us.

heading north or south

July 9th, 2010

As I approached the last hill and the thoughts of what was around the corner Digitizing, I was hit with a whole new set of questions. Is the sun low because it’s rising or going down? Is the farmer around the corner just beginning his day or has he just completed a long hard day and is heading home? If I knew the answer to this, then I could also figure out if I was heading north or south.

What’s the season? Is it a hot summer day and the air conditioner embroidery Digitizing is blasting in by car and heat waves radiating off the pavement ahead? Is it a cool spring day, the windows are down and my arm is hanging out the door? I was able to hear the birds tweeting as I rolled down the road and the sound of chirping bugs from the grass fields filled in the background.

The fun in all this, is that I could be heading north or south. It could be summer spring or fall, there could be a farm house around the corner or a country restaurant. Anything is possible when you get lost in a picture.

racing around in my head

July 8th, 2010

All these questions were still racing around in my head when the nurse called my name. So much for relaxing, break time was over, I thought about this painting and how thought provoking it was to me digitizing. I couldn’t wait for my follow up appointment and when the day came, I was disappointed to find someone sitting in my chair. I sat as close as I could, but viewing the painting from an angle didn’t vector conversion seem to have the same effect. Then the woman in “my” chair was called and I quickly moved into the “drivers seat”

Shadows on the Grass

July 8th, 2010

 I’m sitting in the doctors waiting room, patiently waiting my turn, NOT. I elected not to pick up a magazine and instead to give my tired eyes a break. Sitting there resting my eyes and bones, I noticed the painting on the wall opposite my chair. The painting didn’t seem to be anything special, after all it was hanging in a waiting room embroidery Digitizing, not an art gallery. There was a hill on the left rolling downward from left to right where eventually it turned to fields of grass. More hills on the horizon framed the right side of the painting so that the hills on the left and right led your eyes to a vanishing point in the center embroidery designs.Trapped against the base of the hill on the left and the fields in the center, a road rolled a long the landscape like the trail of a bounding buck. Up and down until it too disappeared around the hill. Shadows cast across the grass field from the hill on the left and a few scattered trees, indicated the sun was not very high in the sky. My eyes were led down the road as though I were driving my car on a country outing when a question crashed into my head. What’s around the corner Digitizing, over the hill? Is another car approaching, and will it require we both slow down and hug the right side of this skinny country road? Is there a homestead around the corner where the family dogs may chase my car, barking at the tires as they run along side? Maybe there will be a farmer driving his tractor down the center and I’ll need to slow down until he can move over.

this one duckling

July 7th, 2010

All except this one duckling. He was designed sitting very upright making it nearly impossible to sit on. Once little boy though decided he was tired of waiting his turn and opted to give the upright duckling a try. Physics never seems to fail, and the boy slid off the ducklings back. He climbed back on and gave it another try and darn if physics didn’t work the same way the second time. He sat there with his bottom on the ground hugging the upright ducky.I laughed at the digitizing persistence of the child and captured the moment forever. Later on Essex St., I stopped in a book store and purchased a copy of “Make Way For Duckling” by Robert McCloskey to take home to my children. While there I picked up a postcard with a photograph of the statues and a bookmark with hand painted ducklings embroidery designs. Oddly enough, both of these have a child on one duckling or another, but not on the upright ducky.

walked through the Garden

July 7th, 2010

I was in Boston recently on business staying close to Boston Commons and the Public Garden. Being a gardener myself, I had heard of the Public Garden and the Swan boats, but somewhere in my childhood I seem to have missed the story about Mrs. Duck and her trip to Public Garden with her duckling. I’m sure someone read the story to me, but I was more interested in little boy stuff and didn’t pay close attention.

As I walked through the Garden, I came across six brass statues of Mrs. Duck and her five ducklings digitizing. Each of the ducklings was perfectly developed to represent his personality from vector conversion the book “Make Way For Ducklings.” Cuter than the ducks though, were the children in the park who would sit on the ducks embroidery designs. Each duck had a small crowd of small children waiting their turn to sit on a duckling.

Getting lost in pictures

July 7th, 2010

Getting lost in pictures is one Digitizing of my favorite exercise. In the previous exercise I spoke of being aware aware of your surroundings and creating your own motion pictures. This exercise will take you one further in the same direction.Pictures, whether embroidery Digitizing paintings or photographs capture a given moment in time. Photographs in particular capture a split second in time. By being able to look at time as it stands still, we’re able to see more detail than we could have as it actually happened. We can take our time o examine the details and those things outside our peripheral vision. This is pretty cool in itself, but we can do better than that.
