No oomph

In my last post I explained that I have had Shingles and can't find any enthusiasm for doing anything. Happily, I can report that I am completely over the Shingles outbreak which was in my mid-section. For the first time in three weeks I can wear blue jeans instead of loose sweat pants. But I have gotten lazy. Too used to lying around and reading and being waited on.

I do keep trying to return to my art and this work is an example. This is created from photos of leaves so I named it, yep - Abstract Leaf. The effort was such that I had to retire to my bed this afternoon with a good book, a coke and a bag of Lays potato chips. Heaven on earth!


That is where the title "No oomph" comes in. I don't have any! Everything seems to be just too much work! I had better find some and quick though. In May I have a solo show at the Willimantic Food Co-op where I am a volunteer working member once a week. Also there are two opportunities to show and sell photos coming up in the next two weeks. And they don't even have to be framed, just matted.

At the moment, two of my photos are on display in a show at the University of Connecticut Library.

That is good you are over your bout with shingles; I hear that is very painful. Your artistic photo of leaves is pretty.

Hi Nancy! I'm glad to hear that you are better now. By the way, I love the combination of coke, lays potato chips and a book. :) It's one of the best ways to beat boredom.

I guess even though you were forced to rest in bed, at the end of the day, you were able to produce a great piece of work.

Glad to hear you're on the mend and I hope that you have enough energy to matt your photos for the upcoming show. Hope you're feeling top notch really soon!

I love the colors in this one. Just give yourself time to recover. I had them several years ago. I'm having fun with my dd's Vitamix making all kinds of green drinks. Lots of good vitamins there.

I've had the shingles...years ago and it will definitely take the 'oomph' out of you! You need to keep getting some rest until you get your energy back. Shingles can come right back again...I know you don't want to hear that! Take care of yourself!
