Bandit is a pony, he is my friend

Conversation with the Superhero this morning – “write down the first words that come into your head”.  Since I have been writing one sentence a day in my Happiness Project journal, he decided he would do a journal too(shock, awe, inspiring, so happy for him) to see if it would infuse more mojo into his guitar playing. His response, “well if I just think….”.  I said,”don’t think that’s the whole point…”  Euraka moment and the Superhero is off writing whatever pops into his head.

Bandit, my neighbor’s mini shetland popped into my head this morning, so I journaled him.  He is a spunky, feisty dude who thinks he rules the world. He constantly sneaks out of his paddock into the open pasture for a little extra grass.  Bucks happily at the dogs who try and play with him and has fallen madly in love with the mare Summer and moon pie’s around her all the time.  Bandit is a dude and I love him.  Homage to my pony friend with  a bit of digital pizzaz.

    Every girl wants a pony, and Bandit is yours! Well, sort of! I have more than once wondered–on seeing horses grazing in fields as we drive by–how Jake would interact with them. Glad to hear that yours want to play with him. Love all the interest in both your back… and foregrounds! Yummy oranges, too! I am sated!

    All that happiness and color came out of one simple sentence about Bandit. Very cool, Corrine.
    Working in my journal this evening and loving every minute. It feels SO good to be making art.

    That’s a great little picture. That kind of journaling and painting would be a great idea for doing a whole
    year & then bound into an altered book.
    (Give the sweet Bandit a hug around his fat little neck from me).

    Well now I have crush on Bandit too.

  18. Janet January 9, 2014 at 12:06 pm #

    Everything about this made me smile! I can just see Bandit romping around and trying to impress Summer.

    I love that SH has a journal. What a great idea for a guy. Don’t think Don would go for that. Will be funny to ask him, however. I love bandit and this field and the lovely story. Makes me wish this snow would stop so I can come play.

    I love that! And how cool to purposefully write one sentence a day … And inspire super heroes to do it too 🙂
