The last two weeks have been emotionally draining. A type of funk that I can't shake. The blog is my main link to social networking for my art, but creating art hasn't even been on my list of things to do lately.   I wish I could take some time off, fly to New York and spend my summer laying around on the beaches of Rockaway. That's how I feel.

I've lived in Texas for more than 20 years, have always complained about the summer heat and high humidity, but all this rain is depressing too. It seems like its been raining since December with just a few breaks in between. Yes, more than the weather has been bothering me, but I never wanted to live in a rainy climate either.

Right now, I have ideas and plans, but nothing solid so Im flip flopping around like a fish out of water. I work at a day job that pays the bills and supports my kids while they're in college.  I'm not sure what I want for myself in the future and I know nothing stays the same.


  1. I think our society underestimates the wrenching transition some of us must go through when our kids leave home for college. I think we have the mourn the end of those child rearing years and figure out who we want to be and how we want to fill our days going forward. I hope you do get to a warm sunny beach soon. Hugs.

    1. I totally agree. Especially when the purpose of ones life has been to raise good children into well rounded adults. Now It starts all over again, what is my purpose???
