The holidays went pretty good this year despite not going to Florida. I have taken the family to Florida for the past several years and it was a bummer not to see the beach. Not looking for pity here, but we decided not to go for many reasons, the first because I didn't want to spend three days in the car. The rest has to do with peace of mind stuff that wouldn't interest you in the least.
I could give a ton of examples of how I have shaken people off when they needed to go. Indeed there have been a lot of folks coming and going in my world, and I have disappointed more than I have inspired. Perhaps I did them a favor. The jury is still out on how "things" will "end up" for all of us.
Like I told a friend of my the other day. Paint your canvass the way it outta be, you are the artist and the one capable of providing the imagery. You will always need to express yourself, you will always be painting. What part of the circle are you on in your masterpiece?--ifyouknowhatimtalkinbout.
