apologies, friends, for the unplanned hiatus from daily posts ~ if you've been following my IG stories this past week, you know I've covered some 2,500 miles road-tripping from NM -> NH with an ultimate destination of VT (today) before returning home to NM later this month
.
what you don't know is that on the road, my travel companion — my sweet 10 year-old pup, wilson — came down with a mysterious festering & horrifying rash across the whole length her snout, a seeming allergic reaction to SOMETHING (tick medication? life? cancer? ???), confounding vets across the country ~ hence my lack of posts thanks to 1) lots of miles & 2) anxiety for my sweet pup
.
9 days into our trip, I finally determined ~ thanks to some late night web sleuthing ~ that the cause of wilson's illness was almost certainly a bite on the muzzle by a venomous spider, likely a brown recluse ~ a terrifying thought, but also a relieving one, for having finally solved the mystery
.
the great news is that wilson is well on her way to a full recovery #🙏 #😊
.
...and...
.
i may now get back to the joyful & pleasant business of focusing once again on being a visual artist & sharing a bit of my creative world here on IG
.
deepest gratitude for the follows & fondness, and your warm wishes ~ especially for dear sweet wilson ~ happy autumn!
