Two Things Challenge – Home/Health
I like to enter the 2 Things Challenge each week. This week is Home and Health. I was trying and trying to figure out what to do. I was going to put some images on one of my bubblescapes .. like kitties … that was as far as I got. So I went looking for the right bubblescape to work with and this jumped out as me as home and health – hope you agree! I would like to be able to create more conceptually – so I am excited about this – because I think the vision of seeing an idea is very important. This is also called Evening Shelter. So thank you! I hope you like my entry.

Have you heard about the book “Complaint Free World”? When I have heard about such ideas of not being negative at all, I also get confused about how to use that kind of idea without losing my thinking and integrity. As many other women I have been taught to accept and not question. Taught to basically be a doormat. I have always questioned, but I have also wanted to stay respectful and hear other perspectives.
When I posted a comment about such conundrums, Lisa Call pointed me toward Christine Kane as a useful resource for helping to sort of this issue. Christine has two posts, here and here, that really helped me sort this out. These kind of ideas helped me sort out what I think for myself. It helped me clarify some issues I have had with this idea (without having read the book) and also helped illuminate which behaviors I want to improve.

Glad the pointers to Christine helped!
Yet another fantastic bubblescape! I enjoyed reading Christine’s article about collusion. I am guilty of this kind of behavior, then later I kick myself for it. I dislike it and feel that it degrades me as much as the other person.
wow a vision to see an idea, sure it’s important. without that word will fails to explain about the idea.
and diane i have put ur blog on my blog roll.
Beautiful bubblescape! I can see the Home/Health challenge in the protection the solo bubble is receiving from the arch of bubbles above.
One of the hardest things to do is to stand out from the group, to think for oneself, to have that strength and courage. We were all taught that we would be safe as long as we were accepted by the group, even if that wasn’t really true. It was a control. Yet so many of us weren’t happy just going along, and many of us are artists!
It looks to me like the only way to create truthfully is to look outside of what the group says is real, to see if it is also true for me.
Beautiful piece, Diane.
Thank you for pointing us to the Christine Kane posts, very good stuff there.
Thank you so much for the leads to Christine’s site! Wonderful clues to being human there 🙂 I saw your comment on my blog today, but not sure what your original request was. Can you leave me another comment with the request? Or had you tried to email? Anyway, glad to be of service if I can, and sorry if I missed a connection along the way! Haven’t been quite been able to catch up/keep up since our move a few weeks ago… but just let me know, okay?
Your work is beautiful, very unusual and powerful. Thanks for visiting my blog! (Sorry it took me so long to return the visit! I’m not sure how I missed your comment?) I’m happy to add you to my list of spiritual artists. I look forward to reading more of your blog.
Blogging from Beirut takes such an awful time, the internet is so slow when it comes to downloading pages with pics so I am very sorry it took me days to catch up with your postings. It took me about 1hour to just get to 2 posts! Grrr!!!
Anyway, I will check out the sites you mentioned.. I believe that it’s time for us, ex-sweetiepies of polite manners and demeanor — to start a revoluyion and take back all the crazy sruff we dare not do when we were younger. Wallflowers of the world, unite!!! :))
