Actually I have two. I took Jordi to the ocean, today, for the first time in weeks he was out of the hospital and house and depressing surroundings. He loved it. Sat himself down, right in front of the water, and a scantily clad blonde and just enjoyed the view. It was great seeing him a bit happier.

The second thing that gave me a bit of pleasure was making a walking stick for our neighbor, Shavone. He's going to dress as an old man, for Halloween, and didn't have a cane or walking stick. So I found a great stick, in the dog park, and fiddled with it, painted and stuck skulls and bones and 'eyes of newt' on it. Kind of great way to distract myself.

I studied with the sculptor, James Surls, and he would sit and carve his wood sculptures for hours in the middle of this huge Quonset hut building where the studios were located. He'd just be singing some country songs and whittling. He was a center of peacefulness-- distraction and focus in balance. It's so good for you when the world keeps shifting around you.
