The Day, some paint and a tune.

I couldn’t rightly leave my only post for the day that depressing piece of shite I posted this morning 2:38a. Today I think has been coming for quite some time. For the past few months I’ve been observing my body slowly loosing control of its self, new pains, new physical and emotional challenges that kind of came to a head today. Thankfully I have a pretty responsive medical team so as of now I’ll be seeing my GP, neurologist and psyc all within a span of two weeks and hopefully I’ll be feeling a bit better by holiday.
So that’s The Day:
Some Paint:

Yes I’m cheating and recycling year days photo, this morning I was able to sand and prime this piece for its 3 rd and 4th time. By tonight it should be ready for a base coat of gesso which I will let dry overnight before I attempt to add any color. This piece I’ve already completed in my head so once the texture is done the painting should go semi quickly. On a positive note Green Girl will be leaving for her new home tomorrow.

I have faith that her new owner will cherish her as much as I and many of you have.

Some unplanned words previously posted but I felt worthy to read again.

My Muse: My Escape:My Soul

As the pain creeps in and the shakes soon begin
I’m taken to place where my head starts to spin.
Of lovers lost or soon to be found. Of things I’ve forgotten
Or left on the ground.
A passage a puzzle a place in my heart
An ending a torture my muse is apart,
Of life and love or little white gloves
Please chase away this pain.
Give me shelter inside a place I can hide
From angels and demons
And reasonable reasons.
One night, one kiss, would I remiss
The brain wants what the body can’t have
And the heart can’t handle.

And now for a tune:

The words to this song really hit the point for me.
Okay well that’s about what I left in me today. PT this morning was challenging as I new it would be. But what the one thing I always try to tell you and remind myself of?
“Never Give Up” today I was close, closer than I’ve ever been. Thanks to a few kind words, beer and a ton of sleep I have at least one more day of fight left in me.

All my love and thanks to those who have seen me this far on the journey, I couldn’t stop now, there’s painting to do 😉

Namaste
