Happy

I staid in bed yesterday, pretty much. That seemed the reasonable thing to do. The day before I got suddenly so tired that I could hardly talk and not at all think, which is very unsurprising seeing that everything good that I could imagine happening happened all at once, including things I've been quite patiently waiting for all my life (for example a beautiful empty house to furnish and live in). Basically, I got the bends from surfacing from stress very suddenly, I think. Today I'll stay at home, too, and do some colouring work. I need to get some spreads of the graphic novel and the cover ready for presentation.
I was supposed to go and search charity shops for interesting cutlery and crockery and food packaging today because I need some more drawing reference for the Jumblies, but by some freak chance I just got to visit the house of a cookery writer, and it turned out he had a vast collection of all those things, including very particularly a collection of vintage honey labels, so I figure I can skip that assignment. I can't quite understand the mechanics of how everything I need is turning up very suddenly in rapid succession, but I won't complain.
I'll post some coloured artwork when it's done. But first I shall drink this here decaf coffee and be stupidly happy.

I suffer from similar symptoms sometimes, you just have to give in don't you. I think it's something that happens to creative people.
I'm enjoying reading your blog, looking forward to the next installment about your grafic novel and how you're getting on in your new home.

"Staid in bed"?

Freud would have a field day.

Sir, I would not have had the energy for a Freudian field day.

You deserve it! And more! But you must get up because I need to read your graphic novel!

Oh I just worked out what you meant... I think I've misspelled that all my English speaking life.
Wrong anyway but let's leave it at that.
