You get the garden planted
You get the roof fixed
You take the dog to the vet
You spend the day with a friend
You learn to make a new kind of bread
You hunt up photographs for someone who thinks he needs them
You certainly have to do the shopping
But you get through this aggravation so you could get back to painting
Because that is the high spot.
The painting is like the thread that runs trhough all the reasons for all the other things that make one's life.
I'm readying a parcel of journals and statements and photo essays and a single completed embroidery for shipping to England. Georgia's advice is going too.
