Rainy Day Dreams

I have to say that I am feeling so much better.  Better than I have felt in 20 years or so.  Lyme disease, which I have in addition to fibromyalgia, has more than just one germ that needs to be eradicated.  Finally, my lyme physician has put me on yet another antibiotic that treats one of these germs.

I have had an amazing reaction to it.  While I was in Maui in October and November, I was able to walk one and one-half miles.  This may not sound like much to anyone.  But for me, it has been amazing.  I haven’t been able to walk much more than about two blocks or so at a time.  Yes, I have walked longer at times, but then came home exhausted and would have to rest for many days, sometimes, weeks.

But in Maui, I did this and was able to keep going back for more.

Inside of me there has been this heaviness, that pulls me down.  It has been there for over 20 years.  That is finally going away.  This is very exciting for me.

My creativity also seems to be increasing.  That is really exciting.

As to this painting.  I started it in Rebelle with watercolors.  I just poured on watercolors in various bright shades and made them very thick and let them pour down.

Then, I took the painting into Painter.  I used some of Painter’s new brushes called Dynamic Speckle brushes. I used them to further refine the shapes that I found.  Then I took pencils and did some outlining of shapes.  This was a very fun painting to do.

I gave it this name, because I started it on a very dark dreary day, and I was dreaming of bright colors that hopefully will come after the first of the year.

    I am so happy to hear that your new medication is helping so much. That feeling of heaviness is so horrible and it’s so freeing when it starts easing up. I hope your newfound energy and lightness continue to increase in the coming year. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    I know that “heaviness” of Lyme disease so well Kerry – so well articulated

    We spoke by phone when we first met online about a year ago or so –

    I have not suffered for as long as you with Lyme (so far) –

    Be well Kerry – keep walking and painting – love your images – you are a kind soul – and so lucky to visit Maui every year –

    Kick those ticks into the surf!!!!

    Best Nick
