Well here is is the 8th of September and I am definitely ready for fall. All my important medical tests are over and I got good results, but for the last week or two my eyesight has definitely taken a turn for the worse. I have a torn retina in my left eye which  leaves me almost blind in that eye . My right eye  is developing  cataracts again, so I'll have to be going to a specialist soon. Nobody want's to go blind, but to a late blooming, aspiring artist it's a real bummer.

Otherwise I feel invigorated and looking forward to the next few months of cooler weather. I just sold my fourth art piece and I am ecstatic!.  Onward and upward . Enjoy!

Sorry to hear about your eyesight Ronnie. I thought cataracts don't come back?

You've sold some of your work, fantastic!

Well, nobody ever accused me of being normal, Pat. I'm going to try and see a specialist soon. I also have diabetes which can mess with your eyesight. but I thought mine was pretty much under control.

Yes I've sold 4 pieces, which was a total surprise to me but very rewarding. Make me feel validated, somehow.
