Therapeutic distractions...

Although it's pretty much impossible for me to mentally "escape" from the current mountain that is before me, there are some things I do to keep myself busy. Besides puttering around my house, doing the usual stuff, I also like to
 make things... 

...and take pictures.

I wouldn't say I'm actually distracting myself, but I am occupying some of the space in my head where I could potentially make myself bonkers. It's also therapeutic for me to be creative. It helps me actually feel that things really are ok, at least in that moment.

And, although I went off my routine for a few posts, Inspiration #8 is here, along with Ron's Joke of the day.  Enjoy! 

Inspiration #8: The story of a friend who found she had the big C while she was pregnant with her second child. She had a brain tumor and started treatment after her child was born. That was 13 years ago. She is one of the most "glass half full" people I know. I truly feel her positive outlook on life ( Which sometimes made me feel guilty for my own negative thinking ) is the reason for her beating this horrible illness.
