Thread Name: BS: My addiction is...
Subject: RE: BS: My addiction is...
Not yet an addiction, but it is beginning to worry me: In the last 6/8 months I've gotten into water color painting, alongside sketching (which I have always liked doing). After music, it has become my favorite activity and, truthfully, I have begun to think that I'm developing grandiose illusions of my ability. On the one hand, I recognize clearly that most of my efforts are, at best, mediocre and that only once in awhile do I produce a keeper. When it happens, I am inordinately pleased.

I find myself thinking of getting frames for them and putting them on my walls. Would that be silly? An indication of advanced age's delusions? Would people, including friends, see them and go away, troubled, telling each other, 'Lately, she is really losing it'?

My oldest brother has always jumped on hobby horses and ridden away madly. One after another He has become a bit of a chuckle over the years. It scares me to think that I may be exhibiting some of the same behavior.

sheesh Excuse my insecurities. It must be the kind of day I am having.
