On another note, I was hit three weeks ago with an evil skin infection that ended up causing me to have some sort of crazy drug reaction that resulted in head to toe swelling and hives that I am still trying to deal with. That's why I was incommunicado for a while. It is my intention to actually get to this blog more often that I have in the past. At least once a week is my current goal. I think it's a good one:) We shall see how it goes with everything else in life hurtling toward what ever end it has in sight for me hopefully a long long time from now!
As I said, I am still trying to get over this crazy medical stuff. On the one hand, steroids are wonderful in that they seem to be keeping the symptoms at bay, but on the other, steroids! yikes! I guess we have to take the good with the bad.
It was in interesting if non-traditional 4th of July in my house this year. I spent most of it cleaning my house as it was the first time I had a span of hours with nothing else to do. Not that I didn't have anything else to do, but those things that I had to do are located in public buildings that were shut down for the holiday so I was forced to be in my home which made me bit the big one and finally go all domestic on my space and clean in up. Granted, I only got two rooms done, but that is so much better than before so I feel accomplished and happy about how things turned out.
I didn't make my way out to any fireworks displays what with the strange rescheduling of many of them due to the weather we were supposed to have. Turned out, the weather on the 3rd (the day many of the events had been rescheduled to) was the day of the most fabulous lightening and thunderstorm I have experienced in quite a while. I don't know if any man made fireworks displays were enjoyed, but I certainly enjoyed the natural splendor of the storm. I even recorded 8 minutes of it just for fun. Unfortunately you don't really get the full effect of the show as I was in my bedroom recording through the window and the rain was so intense all you see is flashes of light and not the actual lightening and because I was using my iphone, it didn't record all the nuances that I was able to see with my eyes. The video simply doesn't do justice to the experience so I won't add it here but believe me when I say it was awesome!
So, now I am finishing things off with getting back to my blog, The Conundrum and dealing with other online/paperwork type things so that tomorrow I can get back to the studio and continue working on some of my new works.
I'm really excited about a few pieces that I have in progress. Pictures will come soon I promise.
So, on that note, I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the holiday weekend (for those of you who are from the US of course)
Be safe and find the wonderful in the everyday!
