[Your Name Here]

Well.. so much for good intentions.

There I was, all raring to go and with new ideas and techniques to use and I hurt my back. The days passed, the chiropractor bill grew, and I just got worse. Finally succumbed to all kinds of medications - including morphine - and after 3 weeks there was finally an improvement.

I've been to the studio a couple of times and spent a little time trying to complete a small piece to my satisfaction, and started a new one. All that time lying down gave me plenty of time to think and at least plan a few pieces. Now Christmas looms of course, so there's work to be done before that.

Our art group ( has a Christmas party tonight so I need to get baking soon!
