Well somethings gotta give and unfortunately its got to be the art.
Short term, anyway.
I rang the librarian I’ve been dealing with at Burton Library to say that I was REALLY looking forward to this exhibition next week and was doing the best I could for getting ready for it. BUT, and it is a BIG but…….. I am without a car at the moment until I get a courtesy car sorted out after my car accident last week. That’s not a huge problem, just a minor annoyance and I can work around that.
But on top of that, I am sorting out my life and that is as ok as it can be, in the circumstances.
And just to add to the problems, I’ve found a house I really like, and have made an offer on it. Which has been accepted. So that means that what should have been quality time for sorting out the things I need for the exhibition have been taken up with endless phone calls and questions.
She kindly listened to all I said and helpfully suggested “Why don’t you cancel it, and leave it until next year when you’re more settled?”
“No” I replied, “I don’t want to do that, although I may well exhibit there again next year when things have quietened down and I’ve got my life on track again. But I don’t want to cancel, I want to do it, even though it won’t be as good as I was hoping, it will be the best I can do, in the time I have”.
Because, this is for the art.
All of it.
