It wasn't just memories and photographs I brought back with me from the UK. I brought back a respiratory infection. A cold, the flu...who knows what it is exactly. All I know is that I feel just awful. This whole week I've been achy, lethargic and fighting a killer cough that is keeping me from getting anything done. I finally broke down and began my herbal remedies but included a few childhood favorites (Vicks Vapor Rub anyone?). I had my first full night of sleep, without cough, last night. It was much needed as I prepare for another trip next week!
Needless to say, I've not had the energy to process pics from the trip, clean my house or cook any food. I've tried but I just want to lay down as soon as I get up. I've been sleeping, catching up on recorded shows and drinking lots of tea. Oh, and I did some art. About the only thing I have felt like doing whilst parked on the couch. And while I worked on it, I forgot for a moment how awful I felt. I was lost in the feel of art. I purchased an extra large art journal and finally did the cover:
Art is Love
As you can see, it's not a very sharp photo. I don't even have the strength right now to hold a camera without the shakes. But, at least I managed to do something while feeling like crap and something that made me feel better. Not only is art love, but it's very healing too.
