Today is the first work day of the new year. I am going to be one busy puppy. And happy that I am. So many are out of work. I am lucky.
I took #3 Son back to school yesterday. He's on the 4th floor. I wonder who I have to know to arrange 1st floor lodgings in the future. I'm not getting any younger, you know.
My ribs are healing slowly. I was making good progress until Saturday morning when I felt something kind of 'pop' and suddenly I took two steps back in progress. I am just now getting back to where I was on Saturday. Hopefully, there are no more surprises waiting for me.
There is something special about bruised ribs. You never know what move you're going to make that's going to hurt. And I mean HURT. If Tom Brady really has been playing football with three broken ribs, he's a better man than I am. Seriously.
'Sarah' is making great strides. It's kind of funny, really. Having found the focus - the meaning - suddenly she's headed right for it, like she wants to get this over and done with and all I can do is tag along and go where she takes me. I had a lot of ideas - things I wanted to get to and cover - but she wants to take the story right to its core without any stops along the way. There must be more I can't see yet. There must be some surprise she has in store for me. I hope so, anyway.
I am working on a new painting - the first in over a year. It's for the Artist Challenge - see the applet upper right sidebar. The prompt is 'Turbulence'. I will use it to illustrate the story I'm writing for The Inferno - see the second applet upper right sidebar - the writing prompt is, also, 'Turbulence'. Everything will publish January 16th.
Oh, and one more thing. In my New Year's Resolution list, I resolved to finish 'Sarah'. In order to maintain focus, I am going to have to publish her every weekend until it's done. At least one day a weekend until it's done. Promise.
