A day in the rehab center/nursing home

Today I painted 25 5x7 watercolor note cards for a show in downtown Jax... all cupcakes. I did about 15 pen and ink palm tree drawings, played piano, played guitar and have plans to do the same. tomorrow. I pass out simple cards and the other roomies love them. One said today "Well damn!" I wanted to say "no shit!". Life is fun. I talk to stroke victims and tell them as they drool "I know you are in there. I've been there. I understand". And they do. I hold hands, stroke hair and open milk cartons. I'm supposed to be here. Seven weeks guys..... I miss my home but it's here for now. Hey, I paint and they bring me food. How cool is that?
Hugs
Nancy
