The Dead(line) Zone

My entries here have been sporadic lately because I am pressed by a deadline for a commission. I have had to delay setting up my new studio space and instead, enamel fumes permeate the house as I finish the work in the living room. The persistent lorikeets, hungry for seed, are the only ones not repelled by the acrid smell.
I cannot bear to look at myself in the mirror. My face is disfigured by an angry rash and my eyes are red and bleary-looking. Another week, and I'll be able to regain a semblance of healthy living – as well as a more predictable routine to updating this blog.
