June 4th –
Nearly three full days have passed since I have written anything in this journal –
I have been completely isolated in the studio for almost seventy hours now – No contact with the outside world (Other than Charlotte), no television, no telephone calls, no internet – Just work.
Not much time left to prepare for the big show – Pulling out all the stops. Just losing myself within the creativity like I used to back in the good old days.
Guess some things never change.


Art supplies are scattered everywhere and the neighbors must be pissed off by now about the constant loud music blasting out of the stereo – But so far no official complaints, no cops knocking upon the door.
Each shape blends into another, each line of detail only leads to the next, deeper and deeper – More intensity, please – Move the light source closer. Closer.
Last night – A bit out of control. Two bottles of spiced rum from Barbados. Painting while burning up with intoxication. Sweat was


dripping from my face and mixing in with the paint. The situation intensified until I had worked myself into a feverish frenzy. Nothing seemed to help until my constant lover led me into a darkened room and shared a secret embrace.
The room was spinning while my fingertips traced out new patterns of expression upon the contours of her flesh.
All I want to do is take a week off, a month off, a year. But I have gone too far and there’s no turning back. I’ll sleep when I’m dead.

    1. Thanks- Yes, we just had a storm to days ago. Only a few inches, which isn’t much compared to what I was used to up in the mountains, but I love the winter and it makes it seem more like Christmas now!

      1. Regret dar, nu mă mişc printre meandrele limbii engleze – sau americane – cu uşurinţă. Te întreb sincer: de cîte ori îmi dai LIKE pe blog, ştii ce am spus eu acolo?
        Oricum, mulţumesc pentru şi îţi urez toate cele bune! 🙂

      2. Da, am folosit “Google Translate” pentru a descifra mesajul-ar fi trebuit să-l pentru a traduce din nou în limba română ca aceasta (Sperăm că acest lucru este traducerea corectă). Sunt în proces de tastarea cuvintelor din fiecare progresie mai jos pentru fiecare mesaj chiar acum, astfel încât abonații mei care nu citesc engleza pot înțelege ceea ce se întâmplă în poveste-1 Piese de schimb prin intermediul 9 sunt terminat acum, în acest fel, mai mult pentru a veni în viitorul apropiat! Au unul mare acolo!

  1. OK! Lattimer.
    Sper să nu te superi dacă afirm că “google translate” este o ilustrare vie a Turnului Babel: una spui, şi alta se înţelege.

  2. I know that feeling of being lost in the fever of creativity… too bad it has to be shoved down to the lowest priority a good deal of the time.

    1. Yes, exactly- Seems like that is the society that we are trapped in, where things like creativity are placed on the back burner / ignored, while more mindless ventures for the sake of $$$ are given the spotlight. Thanks for reading and have a great day over there!
