When One Door Closes...

...another one opens.
Sooner or later.
Just make sure to grab the knob.

I'm always surprised when I look back on moments and only now find the message and notice the convergence in its timing.
Generally patient, sometimes the answers to my wishes come slow. When put in context, I appreciate its karmic pace.
It's now my busy season, and my number one art tool is unavailable.
My bandsaw, a sturdy, trusted and loyal friend, has had a breakdown. Trying my hand at major surgery I found the problem, and sent away for replacement parts. But shipping is 7-10 business days. And not my kind of business days.
This week long reprieve has become a guilt-free gift from creating wall assemblage or sculpture. Clear the shop, make some room. And paint on canvas, maybe, too.
My bandsaw is giving me a summer vacation. What a nice boss.

You and I take the same kind of vacations. We just work on something else. :D
I love that you look at the positive side of the situation as you patiently wait for the vital part.
I need to learn more patience.
I would be stomping my feet and pacing about.
I look forward to seeing your new painting(s).

sorry about your saw ... it's the weirdest feeling to be without something so important to you

Maybe it won't take as long as they say but I have a feeling the "time off" won't go to waste. I hope we get to see what fills the time.
