So what do you do when you are bursting with inspiration and ideas, but lacking in the ability to carry them out? I recently had to undergo some surgery, and my recovery is not quite what I had hoped for. I thought I'd be using all my down time preparing for an upcoming exhibit, imagining myself recovering in my studio, as I have done before. I wasn't counting on feeling to weak to get anything done. How dare I get an infection? I have way to much to do to feel like this, I do not like these limitations! Grrr
It makes me appreciate people who have to battle these kinds of limitations every day of their lives. Makes me a little ashamed of indulging in self pity. A friend of mine who lives with MS said "welcome to my world", boy, that put it into perspective. So I might be down for a few months, but I'm certainly not out, I will get better. Others are not so lucky.
And lucky I am, my kids, my husband, friends, are all helping out, picking up slack. It really boils down to making peace with a temporary setback, and learning some patience.
