go!


this is a commissioned piece of art ... she ordered it for herself ... she likes to travel... but doesn't travel as much as she wants too ... it's inertia, right? same reason people stay in jobs they don't like, put off starting an exercise program, keep going to the same grocery store forever even when the produce department goes down hill, live in a room with a paint color that is just so not great ... inertia ... keep doing the same old thing without thinking about it ....

Oh my, inertia and I are well acquainted. I've been faithful to going out for my 2 mile morning walk tho. I'm nearing 4 months of doing it daily. However, there are other areas I need to tackle. Love the artwork, thanks for the nudge.

no inertia here today, but it is a frequent affliction!
