This has given me a bit of time to reflect on ' What it is i'm doing with my time on this rock,,, As the injury has left me without much else to do but THINK,,,( dangerous, with a mind like mine),,,
I had just finished a painting of rocks on a beach and started the next one in the series at the time. What would it be like to be unable to do what it is i want to do each day? Well i can tell you this about THAT,,, it sucks ,,, time is the healer of the body and healing gives one time to realise just how important each day is as well as just how important it is to accomplish ones goals,,, the humble fact that comes to light is "niether my work or my goal" is important in the big picture so to speak,,, What is important is how well i deal with each day as it comes...
How well do i treat the people around me? My beautiful wife has taken such great care of my every need. My friends have been so wonerfully kind and supportive. i just need to not allow my feelings of boredom or frustrations enter into this,,, i have a little at times and it is harmful,,, Gratitude is a much better choice for me to make,,, I can use this time to draw nearer to those around me as they are so much more important then the time lost being just a painter, carver or woodworker,,, there are alot of those and better ones then i,,, it is better to be a better person. Then the time will not be a waste,,,
Simple things like getting dressed, bathing, driving, and a multitude of other simple tasks just don't happen wihout help... Yuppers ,,, this recluse NEEDS others just to do the simplest of everyday stuff,,,
Nothing is more important then the time i spend with my GOD, my family and friends,,, Work can wait ,,, as really there is no shortage of work in this life. AND it apparently doesn't really matter as it never was thet important in making the world evolve,,, if i am only valued as a drone or cog in some mechanism or treat others as such, life would be so sad ,,, seeing the real needs maybe the lesson in all of this an for that i am grateful,,,
