Cobwebs on my blog

hello everyone, it feels like  a long time since I posted. I've had so much I wanted to blog about, but couldn't get started.

First off I want to say welcome to the new readers of my blog.  I appreciate you following along with me, especially since there has been no new material since the One World One Heart event, lol!
And thank you to my regular readers, I appreciate every one of you.
I don't know how some bloggers manage to post so regularly, it's something I need to push myself to do.

Artwise, I've been working on ACEO's (art that is the size of a playing card) but am feeling the need to paint larger, maybe some angels. The events in our world have made me a bit melancholy. I've been watching some of the news coverage, and wonder what our world will look like next year.
These are interesting times, but also scary. Protests, earthquakes, unusual weather, solar flares,   the economy....doesn't it feel like things are speeding up?

I was remembering an ice storm a few years back, where many people had lost power for several days. They weren't ready for it, and it caused panic.

 I think a good idea for everyone reading this, is to go out and stock up on any foods and supplies you may need if something unexpected occurs.  That's what I did last week, bought lots of bottled water, canned foods, just whatever could be used in an emergency. We've been lucky so far, the bad snowstorms have missed us, but it is smart to be prepared. Just leave it in your basement, and keep an eye on the expiry dates. You are not losing anything by doing this, but during an unexpected event, this could save you from  finding grocery stores empty.
If you doubt anything like this will happen, then how about the fact that food prices right now are skyrocketing? Stock up on things  like flour, rice, coffee, sugar. The prices are rising right now, and in some countries there are riots because people cannot afford to eat. Of course, none of this is being shown on TV, but it is happening.  Hope this doesn't sound too negative, but I really want you all to be safe, and  be prepared, just in case...

Most of all, live your life to the fullest every day, because we are so blessed to be alive on this magnificent planet, and during this most incredible time!

Thanks for reading!
