DAY #296- SO CLOSE

#296- So Close (1)

I’m very tired.  Something is weighing heavy on my heart.

You know I’ve complained more than a few times about national politics in my blog, but today I was tested on a local political issue and I feel like I failed.

What does this have to do with the painting I almost finished today? Nothing. Except that dramatic email messages surged through my computer distracting me from my work and raising my blood-pressure.

It threw off my entire day.

I won’t go into details, but there have been a few times in my life now, where I’ve stood and truly said what I believe.  I might still, even to this day, think what I said was right, but at what price?

Politics is doing a little dance, where you both don’t say what it is you want yet you make it abundantly clear and through subtle channels, you both get what it is you want.

Sometimes blurting out your truth, as true as you think it may be, ends the dance or may even have you losing your dance partner.

I had one of those days.  I spoke out and it will most likely have done me more harm than good.

Those them there are teachable moments.

Learning what not to do.

I’m so very tired.
