Deep Winter Blues....


This is that turning point in the winter months when the darkness seems to stay too long and the funks hang around too much. Today, was the first time I actually felt the sun on my face; just enjoying the feeling of having the heat touch my skin.  I closed my eyes and faced the sun and it felt brand new.

I have bags.
I have baggage.
I often go through my bags.
They are full of items from my past.
 I touch those items to feel the memory of that time or place.

I'm very much ready for winter to be over. I"m just over it. The cold is too much for me. I'm tired of my joints hurting, my back hurting, feeling like the heat is being sucked from my body.

I watched a very interesting movie last night called the Gates of Hell. It won an Oscar for best foreign film back in the 50's. If you get chance, you should watch it.

Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired

My household has it.  My father is still struggles with aging and having Cancer and all that comes with it. My mother is healing from surgery and is not feeling much like herself. I, honestly, feel like I am stuck in rut helping to care for both of my parents and the house. Just run down...

I'm not painting or writing as much I as should/need to social life. My mental and physical health are suffering as a result. I've been trying to re think what I do in my art and how I express myself. Of course, it doesn't help that I have aggravated an injury in my right hand. I haven't had hand cramps this bad since my art school days. The injury is such that I have a hard time gripping things/ holding onto things. Very annoying.
