Storm drove me NORTH to look at a house, it needs work, it appears peaceful, no neighbours to be seen, lots of TREES, a smaller home, easier to clean, more time to draw, bear country. There is already an offer on the place so.. we shall see, I'll know more in a couple of weeks.
It got me thinking.. every step is difficult sometimes but once you've taken it - you think - 'O.K., whew.. thats done keep moving.' I was excited and then cried on the drive home.. lol.
Affordable means further though.. during the drive I mentioned: "I'm not worried about being up here in the bush, alone..." His reply.. "No kidding, you're like Tom Thompson with this nature, hut, painting.." lol, it made me smile and I took it as quite the compliment.
I read a lot about people being ashamed their married has come to an end.
Let me tell you straight up, right now- there is no one feeling ashamed in this home. Norman & I went through more than many, we worked together and tried for 2 decades to make it work.. and it did. We raised an amazing son, had many loved pets and lots of fun.
Money was the main argument in this house and sadly still is, as is is with TOO many.
Now we are in agreement - we are friends going in different directions it appears.
It would be easier I think if we hated each other but life is not meant to be easy... and in this case I'm glad we don't hate each other.
We are too creative a team for that and will continue to assist each other as friends.
Anyhow- lot's on my mind- I'm feeling positive & finishing My KING of the jungle painting today!
I warmed up painting coffee sleeves! lol
