I returned to the hospital today expecting to be discharged. Instead I was given a small operation to rectify some scar tissue which was causing an obstruction. My results from Pathology are still not yet through but I genuinely remain optimistic.
Nevertheless I feel a little 'down'. So I want to share two very special pictures which I painted about twelve years ago.
One is tiny - measures about 3" square. It shows my bestest pals Sam and Ben waiting for my wife at our side gate.
The other (boats, medium sized,) was painted on the day that Sam was put to sleep whilst still a youngster. He is depicted by the fragile vessel caught in the setting sun's ray.
Both pictures hang in our lounge - they bring me a sense of peace and a reminder of unconditional love.
