Keep on keepin’ on
It’s long past time for an update!
I was able to deal with many of the problems that I described in my last post. What happened with my glasses is perhaps the most amusing. When visiting my family for the holidays, my dad’s dog chewed my new set of glasses (even the lenses) to bits, leaving me wearing prescription shades for a while. Since then, I have gotten two more pairs, one of the frames is black and square the other purple and more oval. I like the black ones better.
I have purchased dental insurance, my coverage begins May 1. I have also bought a water flosser and some periogen to help get my mouth as clean as possible before I go in and see how much I need to fork over to fix up my teeth.
I have two new drawings in the “INK” gallery. They are at the bottom of the page. They are depictions of characters from the story, “Slipping,” and will come into play in the story line. It will also tie into my series which I have re-titled “After All Fell Apart.” There are also two additions to the “digital collage” gallery, both are comic book fan art. One is Death and Dream from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, the other is Batman. No new paintings though.
I have helped myself feel better about my comedy articles largely by changing their content. Each month I’ve found and promoted the work of an artist who I feel both deserves to have more exposure, and is within the genere of comdey. Check out my article about Bob RZ. If you are a theatre fan, You might enjoy the tragical horror comedy “Lo” read my review for details. However, since plugging my fellows and not writing fluff, my income has slightly decreased. I guess I need to strike a balance. Fluff is easier to write, and often more profitable.
Speaking of discomfort, let’s talk physical discomfort. About my weight. I need to go on more walks, and not make excuses. I also really need to buy a bed, but I won’t be able to order it until next month. The mattress my aunt Amy was nice enough to let me borrow has a spring in it that causes pain on the left side of my back. I really like to sleep on that side, and even if I fall asleep on my back, I may end up on that side, adding to the pain.
But, I must admit that things are better than they were for my last update. I have a great deal more self worth. I’m still frazzled and in debt, but I’m perking up. 🙂
