How this Works
Hello dear friends I hope you are very well, this time I want to share content through this community that for sure will be helpful or on the contrary will be controversial and I always like that because it indicates that there are reasons to defend and that not everyone has the same perception of things but if we can concile them or respect them..
After the cold weekend, Monday was much more pleasant. I had a day off and spent some time in the park. At first I did not expect to see many birds, but surprisingly there were plenty. I stopped counting the buzzards, they were flying straight forward and just few were soaring high in the sky. Anyways, they were too far, so no raptor images today.
We visited Auburn Botanic Gardens, especially to see the beautiful artificial lake in the Japanese garden. The entire park is worth spending your time on, but this lake makes this section of the park stand out.
The monsoon season is still with us in Thailand, I was taking a walk along the Beach Road, today late afternoon, I had already walked about 2km up along Beach Road, along side Jomtien Beach stretching my legs when all of a sudden the sky started to darken and strong gusts of wind were becoming apparent these were signs of heavy rain was going to be released real soon, I decided to turn back and make my way back home but unfortunately, I was about 1km from home when all hell broke loose making me run for cover luckily there was a 7 eleven store across the road where, I managed to take cover and waited, it out till the monsoon storm passed, the Beach Road is not a very wide road and as the winds picked up more fiercely, it was sending these waves crashing up against the barricaded wall sending the splashing of the ocean water meters up in the air and over the barricading cement wall.
I think my first mistake is to compare myself with people who do not live in Venezuela, not all circumstances are the same and Venezuela is a dystopia where everything happens in a strange and different way. The next mistake is to compare myself, I cannot measure my life by how others' lives are going because nobody is the same, and while some people may seem very advanced compared to me in some aspects of their lives, in others they may not be, and I am only gaining unnecessary frustrations.
It was not like, something usual happen. But you know, sometimes a crazy mind doesn't need any trigger.
I was not feeling like doing any house chores, though who helps me with my house chores didn't arrive today without any notice. My house was a mess, there was a pile of dishes, laundry to do.
In all this chaos, I decided to recline with my pen and paper!
Honestly I'm not exited at all about this drawing and inking stuff. I suck at it and as I'd at this point rather do anything else than draw or ink, I think it shows. And these are the edited versions! Not happy with them but as I've promised to myself that I will do this, then I will do this as practise is the only way to get better. So I will do this and hate doing it. But I will do this. And hate it.
Shopping for a favored snack, (I'm a sunflower seed addict) I found a good stock on the shelves. I bought in a dozen, so I could taste them before I bought a supply. I recommend this for any purchase from a new company, saves wasted money on poor quality, and tainting of your prepping pantry. Yes, I have ordered seeds; as you all need to do!
I started my walk from the monument to Emperor Peter the Great. The author of this monument is Bartolomeo Rastrelli. I paid special attention to the two bas-reliefs that decorate the sides of the pedestal.
Channeling my inner Gary Moore (my lord and savior) and letting rip over this awesome backing track.
Wait for my 'violin' solo at 0:58
Just having fun with some improv over this. I used to sit and play over blues tracks for hours back in the day :) still love it just as much.
