Ruminations of an everyday creative

January 19, 2021

The job is almost done!

You know what it’s like when there’s something hanging over you. A minor moither that kind of just weighs you down and nags at the back of your mind? This particular bother began about 4 years ago for me and has insipidly slowed me down ever since.  And it all began with a piece of cinder toffee!

Long story short: crunch said confection: loosen crown: a falling out of front canine: fear of dentist: minding the gap for years!

It took my daughter’s bicycle accident to sort it. I saw her through a year of quite simply horrendous dental surgery procedures to recover her full set of teeth and I had to give myself a good talking to. If she could do it, then it was time for me to man up, put on my big boy boots and step into the dentists for the first time in a couple of decades.

And this morning I had the hard work done and now have temporary teeth fitted that look a damned sight better already. The three new crowns will be with me in ten days time, once they’ve got through the customs process from Switzerland would you believe. Blimin’ Brexit-Covid.

And why on earth am I blethering on about this today you may well ask? Well, minding that gap has had a toxic effect on my confidence, not least my smileyness, and this has taken the edge off my willingness to share so much of my creative life. So, more videos coming from Anglezarke! With a full set of front gnashers.

My only regret is not sorting it sooner, like years ago! Why let something play on my mind for so long when there's a solution ready to rumble?

This morning, as I played with some images in Lightroom this one caught me and I had no real idea why. But looking at it now, maybe it’s to do with the dark gap through which can be seen a staircase ascending to the light.

Or was I just feeling sorry for myself! 🙂

  1. Wonderful shot and allergy. I love the sense of mystery in this shot coupled with an inner urge to explore that illuminated and inviting staircase. Thankyou.

    1. It’s quite a place that old castle. I’ve spent many an hour in there, usually when the weather’s grim as I have it to myself then.
