Work in progress

Rhys is still so far away and the time apart is torture. The time difference makes it all the worse. I don’t know how other couples in long distance relationships manage to keep their sanity coz I have been very nearly driven mad by longing!

Started work on a new painting – Alone.

A work in progress at the moment…… Acrylic on paper

Trying to channelize all the pain of seperation and vent it out on the paper so it stops gnawing at my heart …..

Be back soon Rhys

Sketching Again

For once in my life, I did manage to do what I decided. Yesterday I managed to do a quick sketch…. the study of a back. While I am not entirely satisfied with the results I think it will have to do for now. In fact it may not be such a bad idea if I do take up painting again. What do you all think?

Boredom of the Sit-at-Home me .

It is mid march and I have no clue as to what I want to do with the year ahead. My days are spent watching movies and dsy dreaming which, needless to say, isn’t the best way to be spending my time.

And over the past few days I have been growing increasingly restless over the lack of a goal to strive towards.  I need a structure to my days.

So I have decided that every day I will try and do something constructive. With time hopefully I will be ready to pick up bigger goals.

Starting tomorrow ……. coz right now its time for me to go nighty night.

Apart

As Rhys continues his trip through the US I cannot help but feel proud of him. However, the selfish me wishes he would hurry up and come back soon. Staying apart is so hard and the time difference doesn’t make it any easier. By the time I wake up in the morning, its usually past his time for bed snd vice versa. Which means our communication is limited to a few short texts over the course of the day. Woefully inadequate, but I will take what I can get.

Meanwhile, I spend my days pining for him. All day I scourge through YouTube listening to the songs we used to enjoy together. And then I came across the video Santiago’s dream that completely captured how I was feeling…… So I cleared some space on the floor and dance along to the music…. and again…. and again. Thankfully no one lives in the apartment downstairs or I would have had a few angry neighbours for sure!: -P
