I Am Overwhelmed.
Life here has been difficult; we have had a tremendous amount of snow. This has meant that a great deal of time is spent trying to keep access to our street open. I live at the top of a very steep hill with a very narrow road leading up. This means that we get no help with snow movers or gritting machines. So much of my time has been taken up helping neighbours move snow, making sure everybody is well and have all that they need.
I have been managing to run, much to the amazement of many. I had thought that the blogging was one of the things that I could lay aside. I was so sure that it had run its course, but it seems that maybe I was wrong on this. I will therefore start thinking again about putting up a few new entries.
I have not had much time for painting, so again I felt a bit of a fraud contributing to blogs on the topic of art. Today I have been working on a small abstract, if I feel it is worthy I will get back to sharing some of these with you.
This week I will hit the ripe old age of 67, rather frightening, I do not feel a day over 25. I have set myself a challenge for this year, to run up and down Scotland’s highest mountain in under three hours. It normally takes people five hours to reach the summit.
I have added a small pastel at the top of today’s blog, it has an interesting little story behind it which I will share on my other blog.
The artwork on this blog is discussed at my other blog. The Squirrel
