Believe it or not, I’m still here! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I updated our journal. Or, maybe I can. I’ve been working for some time to restore my studio, and each time I think I have finally achieved my goal, life found a way to pull the rug from under my feet.
Case in point: for the last two plus years, I was working as a property manager in addition to other handyman/artisan work in order to make my bills and pay for the court ordered ransom to my former abuser (another story). The former paid my rent while the latter paid for my other expenses. This went will until the building was sold, and the new owners proceeded to abuse my work ethic, not only creating a hostile work environment, which includes my home, but also to harass me verbally and in writing, what we call libel in legal circles. Now I have to address that issue in the one place sure to trigger my PTSD – a courtroom.
On the upside, I now have room to create more new pieces, as my new job is in a wood shop, where I can make many of the planned pieces and themes that have yet to see the light of day.
Also, it has been brought to my attention our contact form may not be functioning properly. I am still taking orders, and can be reached at: <a href=”mailto:email@example.com”>firstname.lastname@example.org</a> until such time the contact form is working.
Until next time…
