Endings, Beginnings, Continuations
A beginning: my husband has started grad school, for his master's degree (and I'm having a brain glitch right now and can't remember if it will be in some aspect of software engineering or electrical engineering; his B.S. is in EE). Homework is starting to hit home this week, and he's a bit stressed juggling family and school.
And a continuation: I finally pulled out a painting that I started a couple years ago and abandoned. It's been watching me mournfully from the corner ever since, saying, "You can't leave me like this!" So I'm taking another run at it. The jury is still out on what it will become, past the obvious "tree roots growing over rocks in a forest" idea. I've also got a walled garden picture I started about 6 years ago, still unfinished. Somehow I don't think I'll be like Leonardo da Vinci, carting an unfinished masterpiece around Europe while I get it "just right." I'd be okay with "not bad, I can live with it this way" at this point.
