Over the Rainbow…
Today was a hard day. Yesterday, I somehow scratched my eye pretty bad, and, in my stubbornness, am refusing to go to the doctor. So I’ve been in pain and sore, and mostly blind for over 24 hours.Doing any sort of online work has been near impossible, even twitter and facebook hurt my eyes too much. Even now, I am just very glad for my high school keyboarding classes, as I can avoid looking at both the screen and the keyboard while typing.
In addition to losing sight in one eye, I’ve been dealing with website design and management issues. I love all of my clients, and choose them carefully based on company and standpoint, but I’ve found that physical artists and digital artists clash on design and color palette ideas very much. I have to remind myself that not all people think like I do.
You see, the funny thing is, I have no problem making and maintaining a website for someone else, making it pretty and functional.
I am just an incredibly hard client for myself. I’m always second guessing what I am doing, and how I am coming across, how the website looks. I’m not particularly happy with the current design, and keep making mild changes here and there, but I’m so wrapped up in the other 3 start up sites I’m involved with, that I find very little time here.
So much time is spent with multiple tabs and windows open, with emails chirping off and my phone beeping, I lost focus on this blog.
Tonight I went to dinner with a friend who is going back to Maine soon. This was the last time I will see her in quite some time. The break away from the computer made me realize I’m missing out on life, and missing out on opportunities to share my life with you all.
During dinner, there was an intense storm and downpour, and after it started clearing, the above rainbow showed up. I couldn’t get a very good picture, but I am happy to say it was spectacular and I felt at peace when I saw it.
Sometimes, in the chaos of life, we forget that storms often bring bright rainbows. Even as bad as things have been this week, there are many rainbows and bright spots for me to see.
