           The Entanglement;Abstract Art;Rope plate

After a recent health scare, I was told by my physician,  to take it easy and reduce my workload. 

I was a bit confused, by my doctor's advice........ hello! what planet is he from.

I am a fine artist, we are the most laid back people on this planet, free spirited and without barriers. 
We are stuck, in a world we have created, for ourselves outside the existing one we all live in.

Some of us fine or visual artist, belong to era's long gone and live that way, in present times without a care in the world.

I for one is stuck in the 1980's, I listen to 80's singer Evelyn king, 'love come down' and Kool and the Gangs,'get down on it' every day,  it's part of my daily routine, how cool is that! 

Having said all that, I knew my doctor, only meant well and just wanted me well rested and less stressed, before my next visit.

I knew deep down, that he was right because I'd become entangled, in too many activities and have not had a break, in a long while.

There is always something new to do,adding to my long list of work, and activities.
Sometimes I wonder, how in heaven's name, I created the time, for some of them that are so exhausting and unnecessary.

I decided to turn this period of rest,to reflect on life and how we get ourselves entangled, in all sorts of activities.  

Good or bad, in anticipation of a result, that reflects the reason we got entangled in the first place.
