I've been meaning to get around to this post for some time but, as many who may still follow this gallery and studio might have guessed, it's been a long dry spell of posts. It's been a busy and chaotic few years as I continue to take care of my Father who has dementia. Overall it's manageable but, as you would expect, there are days and there are days. He's been continuing to do quite well though so I can't complain. This, of course, is why posting frequency has gone into the negative integers here, not a lamentation but simply the reality of more important priorities.
This isn't going to be a woe is me, life's hard post or anything of that kind, while being a care-giver can be challenging and even taxing I'm happy I'm able to do it. Your parents take care of you and when the time comes, return the favor, it's the right thing to do. Naturally this is a very time consuming endeavor and it's, of course, going to lead to changes that shift how one manages time and some things have to go on the back burner.
it looks that things have changed a degree as to freeing up some creative breathing room, we just moved into a house.
June was consumed in a rather taxing and tedious move out of our old rat-hole apartment into the house I actually grew up in as a kid. The tedium of the move was ultimately due to the ridiculous situation at this apartment that initiated what was a long overdue move in the first place. There's no need to get into any of that nonsense other than to arrive at the outcome; my Father is much better off in an actual house with handicap facilities already in place and I have a great deal more studio space for returning to my creative endeavors in earnest.
So, in short, we will gradually be easing back into some activity online as new work is completed for posting into the digital wilds. TKP never really stopped, it just went on hiatus online but work continued when time could be made. Posting frequency will be pretty much, stuff comes out when it comes out but I expect the frequency of posts will, indeed, increase.
Happy to be back after being away for so long and very happy to simply say, we're still here rockin' n rollin'.
