Sorry today. There is no "real" post. There was supposed to be a new self portrait drawing, and the first two panels of a graphic story. I outlined and did the rough script for the story Tuesday morning, then things took a turn for the worse. I wound up playing phone tag with several local agencies trying to get appointments to see a therapist or psychiatrist. Long waiting lists. Still trying to get private referrals.

I had a rather unpleasant experience Tuesday which may be a breach of trust or merely a misunderstanding. I'm trying very hard not to think the worst. My body reacted anyway, nausea, cramps, tightness in my chest and a really bad tic storm that kept me up most of the night, I was calmer this morning but crashed the whole afternoon. No real work done. Still can't get to the buried drawing board.

I'll try again tomorrow, I hope to have some personal issues resolved and a functioning drawing board;) Oh, and to get the copy lights and tripod out so I can actually shoot the images.

I was told today, by a friend I trust in such matters, that I need to let go of the past and start moving forward. She of course is right, and yet I don't know quite how to do that. I need to move on, that is certain, starting this blog is part of that, what I don't know is how much of my past I can afford to leave behind, and whether some still needs revisiting.
I said I would have a blog up this weekend, I'm keeping to that commitment. My studio space is a disaster, it has been a disaster for months, scanner and Wacom pad in storage, copy camera set up--not set up, I can't even locate the battery charger for the camera. I have a backlog of material to catalogue, and I haven't really been working on anything new since before last summer's injury. Still, I'm here. I will be adding material to make this a worthwhile project for me, and any viewers who might find it, at least twice a week, on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Thank you for indulging me.
