Still here

I'm still here.

I check my blog every day to see if I made a new post. It's been so long, I think... this girl really needs to get on the stick. This blog is getting dusty.

Then I remember "OH YEAH... IT'S MY BLOG".

Life is slowly returning to a new kind of normal now. I am not even remotely there with finding a regular schedule for freelance and other art projects. But I DID turn on my computer in my studio today. And I AM contemplating restarting some goal-oriented projects I was busily working on before my mom had her stroke. So you could say I am definitely making some progress on making some progress.

Here is one of the many drawings I made while in the hospital the first week after my mother's stroke.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom's stroke. I saw the blog you set up for her. What a wonderful thing to do!

My mom had a stroke six years ago. She is 73 now and is doing well. It's amazing how the brain can recover. It took time though. Be patient. I know it's not easy to see your once energetic mom go through this.

Sending healing thoughts to you and your mom.
Take care.
