I've had a rough few weeks, brain-wise. At first I thought it was 'normal' rough days, little dips on the path to better because better will not be a smooth ramp up. But the dips lasted longer and got deeper than I expected until it was clear I was not having a "minor" relapse. I'm on a new med and trying to get back on the horse. Until things are better AND more stable in their better-ness, I'm going to aim for 3 days a week here, Monday-Wednesday-Friday.
A preview of things to come: Where did the llamas go?!
See Mild Cheddar with Llamas to catch up on the llama drama. And whatever you do, if you can avoid it at all, do NOT get into a car accident and bang your head on a steering wheel.
The Northern Frights party was a blast. The crew is mighty and awesome and mighty awesome, and you should check out these authors as well as the book!
The Q&As & various posts will be up until Thursday, 4/20/17, 8pm:
Rosie and Smudge hung out with me and my refreshments, and I had the Clash & the Mighty Mighty Bosstones playing in the background. All in all, a great party, especially in my PJ pants & slippers.
This is some awesome stuff. I wanted to try something like it when I first discovered the link like 2 years ago, and even more now that I found it in some old bookmarks.

Paintings! Just kinda felt like putting all these in one place today. Talked about oil painting with a friend this morning, and while two of these are watercolors, the conversation just made me really want to return to this stuff. Particularly the oils, but until I secure studio space again, I'll happily keep up the watercolors.
A busy fussy week comes to a close, and all I can think of is how I can't wait to hole up and get some creative work done. I have lunch plans for Saturday, then no appointments or anything until Wednesday, which has a few. In between, I intend to close all doors & avenues to the outside world (except brief strolls through the internet, and maybe a few walks in the real world if the weather's nice), and get some serious work done. I have a very interesting multi-part large-ish project that I just got to skim the top of this week. And there's a big batch of story words sloshing around in my head that I'll need to let out some time soon, too. Hopefully the head will cooperate now that I can sit and try to crank. This week's headaches have mostly hung out constant and unresponsive to meds (pretty typical), but also at the "will keep me off my A-game, but not away from work altogether" level. Which these days I'll take.
See you on the other side of it all. But until then, unless it's an emergency, piss off! And have a great weekend!
Breakfast in Connecticut. Lunch in Massachusetts. Dinner in New Hampshire. Lots of chocolate, Joe Strummer, David Bowie, & The Mighty Mighty Bosstones in the car. First published story in a book from Maine. I'm all over the place today, but drawing ever nearer to where I want to be. How was your day? Where were you? Where are you headed?
