I blog because it keeps me from thinking, "I'd really rather be painting!"
Painting is the one thing, every day, that I count as an accomplishment. And daily blogging makes me accountable.
There's many other things I value: family, friends, hidden object games - now, where did that come from - and occasionally, housework. But painting, at the end of the day, that's what I most regret not doing.
Having said that, though I painted a ton yesterday, I don't have a painting to post, nothing finished. Instead I leave you with photos from Butch's trip (the reason I had so much free time) to see the Rays defeat the Yankees - they didn't - including Derek Jeter at bat. Almost as good as a painting.
