How is September practically over?

I've been feeling somewhat glum of late, thus my lack of posting. Life has kind of gotten me down for various reasons and I try not to let it get the best of me, but it's been a struggle of late. Luke and I have been working opposite schedules and haven't been able to see each other much, which gets old quickly. He agreed to fill in a position at a different location for what we thought would be about 3 weeks and it has turned into 2 months. Thankfully next week is his last one at that location after which he should be back on a day shift.
Life has changed drastically for us in the past year, and sometimes I can't help but feel quite frustrated at what continues to feel like a standstill. Many goals and dreams have had to be put on hold and I'm just really looking forward to progress one of these days.:)
I know God is in control and has the bigger picture, but sometimes I can't help but feel a bit depressed.
I'll try to work on making my next post a bit more optimistic...:)

not a good sign for the art world

I have to admit that I became mildly depressed about art as a whole when I saw in a magazine that a gallery is showcasing a series of paintings done of some of the cast of "the Hills"- one of the all time most ridiculous shows on television. Seriously?! Those people do not need an ounce more of attention; they are already some of the most spoiled, obnoxious people in the tabloids. Ugh. I normally would try to be more tactful in the discussion of "art", but I just found that very disheartening for myself and other artists.:) What's up with the world?
