We may soon consider changing the title of this blog to "How's Lisa."
Me? I'm getting along just fine. I can do my little shopping, carry my little groceries up the long, long stairs, a little at a time. I'm training the cats to dust and vacuum. (so far, no luck). Being able to drive has changed everything for me.
There is one problem, though. Lisa's not here and I miss her.
Before my accident, Lisa would go away to work every summer for seven or eight years running. Before that, she was on the road working in places like Indiana, Alabama, Virginia, New York... for weeks at a time. And then there were my tours and travels. We got used to these frequent separations –– in a way. Thinking back now, these past two years may be the longest we have been together under one roof since the early '90s. I guess that's what makes this time apart all the more difficult.
But that's nothing compared to what Lisa must be going through right now. What seemed like a chance to be in New York, spend the weekends visiting family and friends and have a challenging but smoothly-run job experience re-creating the paint for a show she's done before, now has hit some bumps in the road. To make a long story short: Lisa is about to achieve the seemingly impossible against an impossible deadline. It's just a good thing she's one of the most talented people in her profession.
But, I'm sure the only talent she's interested in right now would be the power to add eight hours to every day.
Side note: If you were thinking of calling her, please wait a few days. Lisa's mobile phone met with an unfortunate accident. Also, she doesn't have a way to connect to the internet in her hotel room. These are issues which will be addressed by the end of next week.
