First Week of February 2007

This week has been a week of prepping.
Prepping for my Brown Bag Lunch Series Art Talk at the Birmingham Public Library (BPL), in two weeks. . .prepping for my son's commencement (that'll be four months from now but the time seems to be flying by! I can remember when it was four years and counting). . .prepping for the Magic City Art Festival (April). . .prepping my receipts to turn over to my CPA. Wow! Is it tax season again?! It's all very exciting and at the same time nerve wrecking. I can only hope that five months down the road I'll look back on this time with a tear and a smile.

The BPL has set up one of four display windows on the first floor, with a few of my needlepoint canvases. Nice. And this morning my uncle called to tell me that he had just watched the Bright House cable channel interview that was taped a few weeks ago. I was relieved when he told me that the interview is "fantastic!" He's recording it for me. Maybe I'll have an opportunity to view it in a few days. The interview loops throughout February –Black History month.

I've been busy creating brochures and handouts for my art talk. One of the images that anchor's all of my printed materials is the one that I've posted. Yes, it's a tattoo of my logo. Yes, that's my Prince. Don't ask.

I'm really exhausted. I can't seem to find my second wind when I come home each evening from work. First thing that I do after I change into my "uniform" (sweats and thick socks) is fire up the coffee pot and guzzle caffine while I watch the local and national news but, lately, I've been drifting off -napping- and when I wake up an hour or two has passed. Unreal. It completely throws me off, and I try to make up for the time by working on one of my needlepoint canvases or cutting lino blocks long past midnight. By the time I crawl into bed and close my eyes, the 5am alarm is beeping and the cycle starts all over again.
