The big commission was supposed to be delivered this week to the San Diego area but the family is stuck at their home in Utah until further notice.
I just have to laugh about it. This was supposed to be such an easy commission. A slam dunk.
While taking this commission on I dealt with so many many wtf moments. If I tried to write it all out in detail you all would seriously think I was making it up.
But there I was dragging (very carefully) this big ass custom made window with me while moving and facing the idea I might be homeless and glue that always dried before suddenly not drying and a “friend” taking advantage of my emotional state while dealing with PTSD…forcing me to move…again.
While I worked on trying to get back up on my feet..I was working on this commission. While I was trying to deal with being 47 yrs old and having nothing but a small part of my sanity left and moving a lot of heavy mosaic studio belongings (by myself) all over the place…I was working on this commission. While I was trying to financially recover from how many moves and a trip to Ireland…I was working on this commission. The work doesn’t stop just because you are looking up how to survive living in your car. I was going to finish this commission. And I did. And now I can’t deliver it and be paid the remaining amount…because a virus is attacking the entire world. Yep.
That all happened…and more while working on this commission. I don’t know if I’ve ever been so ready to deliver a piece and be done with it in my life. 👏
