Or more to the point, several of “those” months in a row? Well I’m here to tell you that sometimes it’s a struggle to get through it.
I’ve found through the love and support of a significant other (be it partner, spouse or just a good friend), and sheer stubbornness, one can muddle through. And I was always told that being stubborn was a bad thing.
Without going into too much detail, I’ll say this: If you know someone who is a caregiver, especially when they take care of someone with dementia, give them a big hug…..they probably could use it. Got a few minutes? Stop by and say hello to them; ask if you can bring them something. Take a few minutes and just listen to them bitch, cry, or just talk. It will make all the difference in the world to them. Trust me.
On to more exciting things! I have been able to do a few shows. January was Retro City Con and the Tempe Library Fan Con. February I joined some other local artists here in Tucson to do The Tucson Flea that happens in different places every month or so. March was San Diego Rocket Con and Gila Valley Comic Con. May was ZapCon and Phoenix Fan Fusion. Now we’re into June and I was able to exhibit my art and needful things at the Las Vegas Artists Guild Art Expo . I also got to participate in Sinister Creature Con in Sacramento, with three of my friends! We packed up our vehicles and drove to Sacramento! That was a gas! Here are some of the photos from that trip and other shows this year:
