No, I haven't fallen into the abyss. I've been working a lot, trying to dig out of the hole from being out of work for almost six years. I'm so thankful for the time in the studio working, stretching, experimenting! Hopefully it won't be too long until the balance of work and sleep settle down and I can spend some precious minutes with paint and threads again.
Today has been a rather pleasant day. I discontinued the Vicodin yesterday and am mostly out of the pain-meds fog. Between drinking what seems like gallons of water, walking, gardening, and doing whatever else I hope will send the newly acquired kidney stones to the finish line, I've been catching up on blog posts. Some new ones are now on the subscription list, mostly those written by seasoned artists whose style, spirituality, and dedication I admire.
My writing will probably never be profound and eloquent, but I'm grateful for the privilege/freedom/right to pen anything I want without fear of retribution.
