thank you

hi again-i published my concerns about being unable to access my blog online with my fellow members of the creative flight facebook page and i got back feedback from the"Creative Flight" facebook page almost immediately! You guys are great. for those of you who don't know Creative Flight refers to an e-class i'm currently taking with the inimitable kelly rae, and i'm learning tons of stuff and beginning to make contact with some new people via the facebook page. i apologize for the paucity of this site right now but it's early days and i have alot to learn! i just began a 10 week hiatus from my side job as a nurse for the nyc dept. of education and boy does it feel good. now i can concentrate on my real jobs making art and writing. i'm going to attempt to insert a few pictures now-wish me luck..

hi there , i'm feeling not quite as panicked as i did yesterday. i think it will all come to me eventually, if i have patience and hang in's not easy when you're not too computer savvy and trying to play catch up with others who are light years away. but someday mommy if i'm a very good little at my job a filing cabinet fell on my leg and no one asked me if i was all right and they didn't want to even accept the accident report from me-i'm a caregiver a sympathizer even to people who are total strangers to me so this lack of affording me the most minimalexpression of concern upset me more than the injury did.i mmean if we're not here to take care of each other who is? i spend the entire day tending to the hurts and wounds of others and not one person called to ask me if iwas all right. we have to care about each other. we have to say are you all right and mean it, and ask if there's anything we can do. we have to try and ease the pain of broken limbs and broken hearts and vulnerable egos and hurt feelings and everything in between,everywhere ,all the time for as long as we can stand it. there's so much hurt out thre in the world without our adding to it-in fact we have to try to take away as much as we can-how areyou are you feeling all right?

Help! This is my first post ever and I have no idea what I"m doing,so please,please bear with me!I have no idea how to make a blog or what to say.I don't know how to put pictures on here. I don't know my way around a computer,and my18 year old daughter who knows about all these things is taking a nap.It's 90+ degrees in nyc as i write and from my window I can see the tops of some kind of trees or other billowing in the breeze. I know a little bit about alot of things.I know next to nothing about others.Have you ever read a blog as boring as this one.I love painting big bright abstact paintings. i'm currently working on a series of collaged portraits of women, hoping to get into encaustic painting, will spend the summer drawing and painting at the art lab at snug harbor-staten islands answer to the botanical gardens(pick your borough), the art student's league, with some glorious romanesque at least that's what i call them-buildings thrown in for good measure-more about the magnificent snug harbor in another post if i ever get through this one.i'm currently enrolled in kelly rae robert's e-class. iregistered late so i'm really behind. but it was suggested in the course that a blog was in order. someday i'll know how to post pictures of my work but right now i don't know how- so if anyone reads this and can help me i will be ever so grateful and i'll talk about finding your soul and all kinds of other cool things if i ever find out how to do this .hopefully yours, brigid agnes claire gallagher davies(not the archbishop of new york.)
