About Artsy Saturdays (and other such things)

For this Artsy Saturday let’s step back and look at the broader view of things.


Artsy Saturday is a part of the trilogy of new projects I am starting at RJsCorner. The banner above shows the other two. For the most part, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays are now dedicated to becoming a better artist, storyteller, and thinker. Part of my “Never Stop Learning” mantra is to constantly become better at the things I cherish in life. This trilogy is definitely a big part of that subject.

Artsy Fartsy

Saturdays are dedicated to my artistic endeavors. Currently, the primary one is to become a better sketcher/doodler, but other topics will likely intrude. Many of these posts will be about going through the book shown to the right. At least as I thought at the time, I was a pretty good sketcher in my youth, but for some reason I didn’t stick with it. I intend to do that this time.

Every Picture Has A Story

Sundays are about becoming a better storyteller. I humbly think I am a pretty good one now, but there is much room for improvements. I will take a picture that I photographed, sketched, or just like, and tell you a story about why it means so much to me. If I had to put a priority on what talent is currently the most important to me, it would likely be storytelling. I want to tell you stories about my life. These stories will be my autobiography so to speak.

The Philosophy of Life

I have been fascinated by this subject for as long as I can remember. My in-depth study of philosophy started in the 1970s and has continued unabated since then. I make this topic a regular Monday series so that I can revisit much of what I have learned and maybe give them a fresh more enlightened perceptive.

As mentioned before, philosophy is at its core “The Love of Wisdom”. In its broadest sense it is an activity people undertake when they seek to understand fundamental truths about themselves, and the world in which they live. 


I leave the rest of the week in the freestyle mode, to cover whatever escapes off the top of my mind. Usually, I don’t even know what that will be until it happens. As talked about in the last few posts, Retirement Community Life (RetComLife) will be a big part of what else is covered. Except for my roadtrips, which are starting their Fall versions soon, my RetCom is where I spend almost all my time, so naturally I will be frequently talking about that.

My view of the world is like most other things in my life, never static. You might even say it is chaos, but I kinda like it that way.
