Inevitably, along with the first breath of spring, the dreaded cold arrives,
extends its stay a lot longer than planned, and finally leaves taking with it
the aggravating symptoms. Work in the studio continues along with
opportunities for some business networking within the final week of the month.
The paints , brushes, canvases, and paper are placed alongside of Kleenex boxes
and cough lozenge packages, half-emptied.
The true remedy (at least for me) is the daily dose of chocolate, which I
am convinced is a necessary component of my diet regimen. No one is more delighted
to hear that dark chocolate is actually healthy, and I believe that chicken soup seems
to make everything better, just like Mama always said .
Another painting from the BVI series awaits photography and uploading,
only recent weather has caused a slight delay in completion of that item on
my t0-do list. Everyone you run into has that “I am so over winter” expression. The small
portion of today’s sunlight that filtered briefly through the windows seems to be a
sign that it will be a more frequent visitor soon, if we can just hold out until next
month… just in time for the swift arrival of pollen and ragweed allergy season.
Meanwhile, pass the nasal spray. Thank you.
