Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Update on Jaw Problems. Oh boy!

Hey guys –

I went to see a specialist yesterday about my jaw, since it isn’t getting any better. Turns out I likely have a disc out of place on the right side, keeping it from opening. I’m supposed to be getting an MRI once my insurance approves it (I hope they do O_o), and then probably getting a fluid injection in my jaw to try to get the disc back into place. Fun times, right? -_- I’m nervous because if this doesn’t happen within the next couple weeks, my jaw-disc will likely be beyond saving. I guess there are still things they can do to help me at that point, but I want my disc! Lol. I’m a baby when it comes to health problems, so needless to say I’m pretty stressed out over here. I’ll just keep praying that things move along quickly and this can be taken care of. Drawing-wise, my neck is doing quite a bit better (the neck pain I have now is likely related to my jaw being off-balance), so I’ll probably start drawing again, but take it slow.

Speaking of babies, my sister is supposed to be having one any day now! :D I hope I’ll be able to go and visit my new nephew soon after he’s born.

Oh, on a humorous note: At my appointment yesterday when waiting for the doctor to come in, I looked over at their computer screen and saw they had made some notes about me there. It said “Patient is of quiet disposition,” and “Patient presents mild distress.” I was like, They’ve been judging me since I walked in here O_o Haha XD I told my husband about it later and he said, “That’s you! They summed you up in two lines, in that short amount of time!” Too funny XD

(Hopefully) Brief Hiatus

Hey guys –

I’ve been having some trouble with my jaw for the last month or so, like it isn’t aligned properly and I can’t open it all the way. I read recently that posture can play into this issue, like “holding the head forward while looking at a computer all day,” which is basically me doing digital artwork, lol, so I think I need to take a break for a little while and see if it helps. On top of that, I managed to strain my neck on Wednesday and have these horrible muscle spasms going on in my neck/upper back, which is also making it tough to sit at the computer (or do much of anything ^^;). I’m really hoping that will let up soon, but yeah, just one more reason I’m gonna have to take it easy. So while I hope this ends up being a short break, I just thought I should let you guys know! I doubt my posture for traditional art is a whole lot better, but maybe I’ll try interspersing more of that type with my digital work in the future. We’ll see. In the meantime I’ll still be around, and I hope I’ll be back to drawing very soon! Thanks for your understanding ♥

And Klassic, if you’re reading this, don’t worry at all about our challenge entry. I got a good start on it before my neck pain set in, and I expect I’ll be back at it and have it done with plenty of time to spare. Just a slight delay!
