I though I better practice perspective today. With rain pending, I went for a drawer in the kitchen, pulled out a bunch of tools and went to work.

Forgetting how hard tools are, the drawing progressed, went backwards, and then moved ahead. The problem with a recognizable object is; familiarity. If one screws up, it’s so damn obvious.

Tra voi tra voi saprò dividere
il tempo mio giocondo;
Tutto è follia nel mondo
Ciò che non è piacer.
Godiam, fugace e rapido
e’il gaudio dell’amore,
e’un fior che nasce e muore,
ne più si può goder.
Godiam c’invita un fervido
accento lusighier.

Violetta (as she sings to an impossible task)

These are my tools, at least a few. I require them to create, breathe and eat.

Forks and knives of the drawing table.

I’m always looking for the next whose feel is natural in my hands and pleasing to the eye.

It is about the feel, isn’t it?

Not many men will admit nor talk about their erection dysfunction. However, I will and have learned to live with not being able to build, use a tool or erect. It’s a damn shame, because there are so many jobs in the house that require a man. A real man. Sadly, I have always had to “hire out”.

Could it be my upbringing, religious affiliation or lack of? I don’t know. I will admit that once I put a sliding lock on our pantry door with some success. It only took my dog 5 minutes to break it free.


Tools pinch, make funny grooves on my hands and seriously make me want to double-up on my Celexa.
