Final Chapter…

A very rough holiday weekend, starting with another retinal hemorrhage on Dec 21st and yesterday’s confirmation that my one remaining retina is simply disintegrating. How curious that my last painting would be of a sunset (the previous post) — I am very pleased with it, a lovely place to rest.

I will have a huge new learning curve ahead of me, learning to live with severe or total blindness, but I can’t pretend that I am the first person to go through this, nor will I be the last sadly. There is a very competent agency nearby that works with people like me, and when this utterly frustrating ‘holiday season’ is finally over, I am hoping that everyone will be back to work, ready to help folks like me get on with our lives.

I will be taking this blog down as of the first of the year, shutting off the lights in this theatre before I move on to the next venue of life. If I have infected you with itchy fingers to paint or write, or hopefully both, then my work here is done.

Be well, and thanks for your creative friendships.

About Bobbie Herron

I sit here in my loft studio, surrounded by watercolor brushes and paints, fountain pens, sketchbooks, journals- wanting more than anything to write and paint at the same time. I am the fourth generation of journal-keeping women, starting in 1862, and I have read their words and between their lines. This blog was inevitable: thoughts on the unsung glory of women whose lives were recorded and transformed through their writing and art.

    Oh Bobby I am so sorry to hear this! You are such a gentle, kind and loving lady and it has been a Pleasure to get to know you! You are certainly about to embark on a new adventure and although I know it will be a struggle, I know that you are a strong lady and will just do great!

    I still gave my weaving that I did with lots of help from you and I still love them. They sit prominently in my home where I see them every day. Thank you so much!

    Big hugs and much love,

    Donna
