One of the things I do appreciate at my day job is, at the start of any zoom meeting, the host would say: Good morning, good afternoon and good evening to all of you and thank you for joining.
Not sure about the rest of the attendees, but I sort of take a step back and reflect on all those getting ready to start the day, the ones planning their lunch and even the poor souls who have to be on way past their working hours to attend a global meeting…I wonder about the scene behind the image of them sitting still in front of the camera.
For me it is always at 5a.m., having rolled out of bed, with a cup of tea in hand, hoping no one would need me to talk about anything so intense. What do you do during a zoom call?
I woke up very early this morning to get to the local grocer to pick up eggs and some breakfast goods. On the drive back, I actually pulled over to watch the sky as it slowly turns to daylight, with mixture of matted colors and I thought about Claude Monet and his paintings capturing the very essence of dawns early light – in my opinion the most beautiful time of the day.
Speaking of artists. I do have an interesting film recommend for you. The Electrical Life of Louis Wain. The story about a disturb artist from the Victorian Era, who spent his entire life painting cats, almost an obsession, and although his work was well known, he was often broke. I cannot brag enough about the film and frankly it was a reminder of how troubled most artists are. Perhaps the troubles are what inspire creativity.
Have you seen the film?

What are your plans for the weekend? I’ll tell you all about mine when I figure out how I want to spend it.
Have a great weekend and remember if all else fails, do something for yourself.
