well not just my opening, but an opening with my work there. Not just any work, but the first time a piece of my sculpture was accepted into a juried show. Although I know it is not a sure thing or a verifiable thing, I am taking this as validation that I am headed in the right direction and this new medium can have some real artistic value… I friggen’ missed it!
Somedays heart failure raises its ugly head and aggressively marches into my life. It reminds me of a demanding toddler having a tantrum, screaming, stamping its feet and demanding my attention. For the most part, the best thing I can do is ignore it, knowing that it (the temper tantrum and heart failure symptom) will go away sooner. But then there are those days, regardless of how hard I try….it is bigger than I can ignore….and I lose important days of my life.
(barely evident in this pic, my piece is way back there, to the left of the portrait)
