|"Bouquet of Flowers Showing Just the Tops"|
My blog got zero new "likes" this week. Ditto last week, and the week before that, and the week before that, and the week before that.... you get the picture. I also sold no paintings, although I started a new one that I am quite excited about. But nobody else seems to be, and even the people who like them don't like them enough to actually pay for them, happily accepting them as gifts. (My brother-in-law, a millionaire, has at least seven of my paintings hanging in his home, but never paid me a dime.)
I'm not complaining, just sharing. Anyway, I will continue writing and painting and taking pictures and maybe someday, long after I'm dead and gone, somebody somewhere will stumble upon one of my unpublished novels or unsung short stories or a painted table or photograph or painting of mine and find it thrilling. That is my sincere hope.
