...when the tire goes flat...

I have been working on a new project, as well as trying to keep up on what needs to be done at home, and finish up on some commissioned work...AND get some new work done, meanwhile...adding to the pot..being sick now for about 8 or 9 days.  We have had a flu and sinus bug going rampage at our house.  Now, is it a coincidence, or is there more to it?

My project has been forcing me to review where my artwork is taking me... and at times I get so frustrated that I feel like the air is being taken out of me.  Well, not literally, but I kind of liken it to the explanation.  I was trying to think how I would describe it, a few days ago, so people would understand.  My thought was that, if the air goes out of a tire, it doesn't quite go around and around.  It stops.  Then the metal part of the wheel gets all banged up and pretty soon all kinds of things go wrong.

So today my daughter calls from the school, she is sick.  I drive to town in our little but trusty subaru.  On the way there, things are going ok, except I noticed the car not driving quite the same.  It was pulling a little funny..like kind of going where it wanted to.  I kept it on the road.

I stopped by the sidewalk when I got uptown and some nice man told me I had a flat tire.  I of course then had to go fill it back up.    It isn't hissing... and appears to be staying in there just fine.

I am not sure if someone, or what let the air out of my tire, ... but I guess the moral of this story is...when your tire goes flat... just put a little more in.

As for the project... I will be sharing the goods on that soon... so stay tuned......
