Every year the Penrod Arts Fair is held for one Saturday and it is the best art fair I have ever been to. It’s held on the grounds of the IMA and it has artists and organizations from all over the place. It’s been a tradition for me to go every year and this year I got to take Hannah. She hadn’t ever been and she had a lot of fun. She got to help paint a part of this painting which was going into a local bar.
It’s not Summer if you don’t go to a county fair. At least that’show it is here in Indiana. This year I went to the Hendricks County Fair with Hannah and Cassie. It was a little weird this year because it was actually kind of chilly outside instead of being 98 outside. But it was a lot of fun. We walked all around, did some people watching, watched baby pigs race, ate fair food, and saw all the animals (the majority of the time spent in the goat barn).
Have you ever laid and stared at the ceiling, motionless, just thinking. Just letting thoughts flow. In and out. Thinking about everything. About life and everything in it. Good thoughts and bad thoughts. Dragging those thoughts that you shove in the dark because you are afraid, out into the light to see what they’re made of. You don’t know if it’s the right thing to do, but you do it anyway. Because they swirl around and you just have to make sense of them. It’s not fair that you have those thoughts. The dark ones. But whoever said life was fair?
