Summertime Update

 I have been trying to write this post for a month now…  Even small posts can take too much time.

Anyone who knows me well is probably aware that sometimes my attention span is like that of a goldfish. Since more or less recovering from surgery I have been in a frenzy to catch up on the many things I’ve wanted to do these many months.  I did accomplish a few small leather working projects, messed around with watercolors, did some good reading, and took some actual paid work (yes, an actual job) to cover the ever-present bills.

Watercolor miniature in the works.

I’ve now been released back into the wild by the surgeon and the physical therapist and declared healthy enough to begin working out and to go about my normal activities. With so many things to do I have little interest or time to spend in front of a computer screen and I loathe it more than usual.  I am very happy that I have been encouraged to re-integrate real exercise back into my daily routine.  Just because we get older, doesn’t mean we need to let ourselves go.  I am as guilty of this myself.

We learn to be lazy, but we don’t have to be.

I have taken much inspiration by the work of my fellow artisans and the projects they post online, without the stupidity you find in regular social media.  I am sometimes shamed by my own lack of productivity but still thrilled that so many people I know have grown their talents to such heights.

Pressing onward.

  1. Hey Pard,

    Glad to see you back. Winter is coming and you will have more time for Computer stuff. I will not see you at Rabbitstick this year, but will be headed to Winter Count instead. Conflicts with other commitments.

    Be well and have fun.

    As they say in France, Bon Recuperation!


    Your Pard,

    Bill Gwaltney

  2. Glad you are back in the saddle sir. I only just recently returned North of the Wall after most of the Summer aka doing pretty much none of my own crap but looking forward to Winter. Happy you can return to life outside the Matrix.
