I know they say a picture is worth a thousand words but I'm not really sure what this one has to say. From an artist's perspective it sucks and not just because the background is cluttered and the lighting is off but if you're wondering what I've been up to, it's pretty spot on.
I know it's not really the view I had in mind when I asked Dave to take a picture for me. What I was interested in were the two characters laying across my pillow protected lap while he obviously saw a much wider perspective.
I imagine you can tell from the picture I spend a lot of time on that couch. Most of the clutter has to do with those things it takes to keep me comfortable. Seems like any time I decide I'm mended enough to be off that thing I end up right back on it. Progress is slow and driving me absolutely crazy.
The phone calls, cards and emails have sure helped with my sanity as have the two friends gracing that couch with me. I'm pretty sure Sugar and Squeaker appreciate my couch bound time much more than I do. My interactions with the horses are way too brief. I am longing for springtime and good health so I can get back to doing what I do.
In the meantime I'm wearing out the couch and pretty sure by the time I get done with it it will be ready for the dump. I'm already so sick of it I don't care if I ever see it again, so that might not be a bad idea for moving on from this part of my life. Sugar and Squeaker probably won't appreciate giving it up but then in place of actually getting my lap back they just might not care either.
I get a clear look from each of them that says they don't think much of the pillow on my lap. Each has tried her own little maneuvers to rid themselves of that fluffy lump between her and me. Maybe that's why the two have resorted to laying across each other as they accommodate my request for company. Who knows but it's a close up I was really hoping to capture that just can't escape all the clutter.
