A New Season?

There must something I can do. When too many days appear the same, I wonder what talent I might still have. I hate the word "disabled". It has a tendency to impress others with the idea that I'm a cast off. That's not the feeling I have; yet things I used to do are challenging, at times impossible. Sadness is the enemy I combat when thinking on the past. Still I'm encouraged that there is something, and I seek it.

People say, "don't look back," and yet the very thing that gave me past happiness might simply need adjustment. I take care not to limit myself in thought. Physically I can push along some days without injuring myself. It's been a matter of knowing when to stop, rest, return to a project. I was diagnosed "disabled" in 1998. Since then I've come to know the things that have to be avoided. Where would I be without common sense?

So I'm exploring every venue that comes to mind. I welcome any thoughts or ideas from others. Hey just throw something out there; you never know.

Here's hoping your day is filled with direction!


  1. Hi Dixie. I remember when the word "handicapped" became taboo and "disabled" took it's place. "Differently-abled" was short-lived and too clumsy. But why label at all? All of us are less than perfect in one way or another but in some cases the imperfection doesn't show.
    I say drop the labels and say "I am what I am" to the world "Take it or leave it!"

  2. Bazza, over here we have all the labels; nothing gets dropped or changed except quality of treatment. But I so agree with you!

    I had a listen to Julian's preludes 3 & 4, but maybe I need to hear something more. I'm trying to imagine myself painting to this... might have to pick another one of his recordings.

    Glad you visited!
