I've finally a minute to write a journal of substance!
Firstly I'd like to thank all of those who have continued to follow my art despite my frequent exodus from one site to another. I realize I'm old and crotchety and can be a pain in the ass when it comes to leaving sites, and I apologize for the inconvenience. There are very few things for which I've zero tolerance for, and if a site condones one or more of them, I simply don't use that site anymore. There are so many places to post art online, why stay on a site where I'm uncomfortable? I appreciate your following me here (and tumblr too if you watch me there) and I hope to continue providing artwork for you to enjoy.
Secondly, I'd like to address some of the positive things in my life. It's not often I write about things that bring me joy, and I really should get in the habit of it.
Recently my Fiance and I attended a reptile show where he helped me bring home some adorable friends. Taking care of animals is really what gives my life meaning since I'm unable to have a steady job. I'm prone to really bad freakouts caused by Schizophrenia. I'll have several good days, I become confident and get a job, then I have several bad days and lose said job (usually in an unfortunate manner). I receive some help from the state, so I can at least have my medication and doctor visits.
But I digress.
I've been hand training a baby bearded dragon we brought home. His name is Hotchner. I find spending time with a living thing that isn't horrified by my presence to be really rewarding. Even when I have delusions and spend hours muttering in my room, he'll still be there when I'm sane enough to hold him. Animals a great like that.
I' glad I could take a moment to write something positive for everyone.
Thanks again for following me, I wouldn't bother posting if it weren't for your support.
