got much of what needed to get done today, done. laundRo…groceRy…and then laid down and read for a sizable spell on account of having a stomach ache. i finished A Movable Feast, which i really enjoyed. good old Hemingway…his style of writing always leaves me nostalgic…and pensive and hankering for a cup of red wine. all things being equal, i made a small pot of coffee and am gearing up to work on a painting. here is where i sit, quite rested and motivated to make something that will hopefully turn out a-ok.
