Profile drawings of people I know. I went to see a jazz band on Friday, and did some sketches. Many other jazz inspired drawings to come.
Yesh, it's depressing these days. We are witnessing the Western Capitalism failing, and what do you know, artists are at the bottom of the food chain. We are the most educated generation, but it's hard to find a decent paying job... Counting inflation, we get paid less than ever.
Oh, also all these doomsday talk. Global warming is here, and grain price is sky rocketing... Global water war is looming over us... Island of Madagascar is, well, quickly being destroyed. I am a generally happy person, but with weather and all, I've been gloomy on and off.
There are many reasons to be depressed. But seriously, it won't help anybody. I saw in this Korean documentary, that happiness is like a muscle, you have to work at it. In that documentary, they made their test subjects (who are all suicidal) to laugh outloud, and write down what they are grateful for. Everyday.
So I re-started Hyein Grateful list. More to come. Try it. Really, you'll realize how fortunate you are.
I hope to god I spelled hallelujah right. ...Goddamn, the spell checker says no. I apologize.
