Life has been a struggle lately. I am attempting to have MnDOT reimburse me at least partially for almost $300 that I had to spend to replace a nearly-new tire and one rim, after striking a large pothole at night. The $20-$50 copays for my therapist, psychiatrist, and prescriptions have taken a huge bite out of my personal budget. Since I have started producing more work (eye strain), I have been plagued with frequent headaches. I found a couple of my old (like 10-20 years) pairs of glasses, but I need an eye exam. And to purchase new lenses and/or frames. And to see a dentist. It is costly even with insurance.

I am doing my best to balance all this with reinvesting into my business, and bringing my work to new conventions and venues in the Midwest and around the country. I am also seeking an affordable civil attorney — if you are, or you can recommend one — to consult regarding intellectual property issues.

August will be a difficult month. I have picked up about 40 additional hours at my day job, and will be returning to my commission waiting list soon. I did not come so far, or work so hard, to give up or be discouraged. If you have been considering signing up for my Patreon, making a one-time gift/contribution, or purchasing some artwork, now is an extremely helpful time to do so.

I ran over a series of deep potholes coming home one night last week, in an unlit area, and ruined one of my brand-new tires. Thankfully, I made it home safely without a blow-out, losing control of my car, or worse. One wheel was damaged, and I may replace it soon, but I did have to purchase another new tire. I had never seen a “tire bubble” before. I drove back to the area during the daytime to see what I hit. Apparently I can file a claim with MnDOT.

Searching out ways to resolve the scheduling issue, I am making plans to get my CNA after my final convention of this year in the fall. Doing so would open up positions with more flexibility to me. I am also researching the feasibility of earning an LPN while juggling a job and my personal business. (Wrapping up a few almost-finished projects would help, significantly.) I would like to evolve into hospice care, someday, as I feel a spiritual call to care for the dying. I am comfortable with death and loss in a way that many people are not.

This essay about “hunger” I read on Sunday resonated with me.
