Entry: "mmmmm..."

After a pretty much uneventful day at work today, it sure does feel good to get home where I can finally let my creative juices bubble over after being on a slow burn all day. I was literally marinating in art ideas at work, but of course I had to focus on doing my job while there. Tonight I planned on doing some art so I figured I'd come here with the intention of dropping a quickie blog about some ish that happened the other day when I was driving...but dayumm..wifey-poo Cheryl got something cooking downstairs, LAWD have mercy, it's smelling so frinkingblinking delicious, it got a brother's mind all jacked right now. Forget about the road rage I was going to blog about, k? Literally I can't even focus on whatever it was that I came here to blog about anyway. Funny how smells, particularly certain smells have that kind of power over me. I have always been a sucker for the smell of chicken as it's being fried...mmmm dayummmm! Or chocolate chip cookies still in the oven?? Who you talking to? Or cornbread just pulled from the oven...watch yourself! Sorry peeps, so much for blogging tonight, it's time to go 'vestigate those smells wafting my way and see if the missus needs my assistance perhaps?

Peace....and hot biscuits!

Hey man. Funny how you were going to have a different subject to blog about when something else occurs and you blog about a totally different thing altogether huh? I've been there plenty of times. And the connection of certain smells with memory can't be lost either. Triggering some melancholy moment in our lives. How about that mr. Greg? You have a good one friend.

Ya know? Actually one of my pics, "Samson", (the tiger) was inspired from a long forgotten smell of the tiger at a circus I went to in my young boy days...I was sitting in my room about a decade ago just doodling around and out of nowhere I suddenly remembered a particular smell from my childhood, the smell of the circus...it inspired me to sketch and then later paint that tiger picture...have a good weekend, make sure to ride the wave of creativity if it catches ya brother!...greg

Mmm, mmm. Well if yall need any help fixin' that chicken, just let me know. My dinner is boxed and frozen this night. I remember when eating TV dinners were a rare occasion.

grinzzz...Since we both work and sometimes get off late, I have become familiar with the dreaded T.V. dinner ritual also. Once I was served one that was downright tasty though, but I forgot the name now...have a creatively inspiring weekend Mr.D!...G
