The Forest


“To be sure, I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but (s)he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche

What a Week

It has been the most exhausting week I have had in a very long time.  During the day for some moments of it, I have seriously needed toothpicks to hold my eyes open.  This extreme fatigue was due to my mother having outpatient surgery.  Early to get her to the hospital and staying up almost all night to be sure I was awake in case she needed anything or had an issue.  Sleep deprivation is a very real thing.  This morning I tried to take a mid morning nap.  I slept for two hours. That helped.  The feeling of a sludgy, zombie brain is wearing off.   Slowly.

Other highlights of the week have been my total obsession with April the Giraffe and her baby that refuses to come. I have been tuning into her feed for over a month!  Still no baby.  April is now her and she seems like she is finally moving rapidly toward labor.  That is according to the zoo handlers and her vet.  But…there is still no baby.  My daughter is totally OVER me talking about April.  Whenever I try to give her an update she literally says she does not want to hear it!  RUDE!  I mean the whole world is waiting on April to have that giraffe.

I play Pokémon Go on occasion and lots of new items and creatures have just been released.  I was almost done with collecting them all. Now I feel like I have to start all over with the new ones!  You know…if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Pets!  We have two that are so needy.  So annoying when you are trying to take a nap to recover from zombie brain. They jump all over you and squeak toys wanting to play.  Really!  Nap time is not the same time as human ear bathing time.  OMG!  No rest when needy pets are around.

I have almost completed my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project.  I have 2 pages to complete and I will be done.  I will then send it back to the gallery in New York for digitizing and tours.  I think that will be my last one for a while.  I have done three in as many years.  I think I am goinfloater itg to be concentrating on writing.

Funny and creepiest thing of the week as been the #trump #IT meme.  It is very creepy and funny all at the same time!

Tomorrow is a new week.  Another chance to get it right!
