6MMRPC Weeks 11 and 12 in Review

Not much went on for weeks 11 and 12 of the 6MMRPC directly mini-or hobby-related.  I bought a car, sold an old car, spent a weekend in Knoxville, TN for a friend's 50th birthday party and generally stayed busy without any time at the painting workbench.  The birthday celebration was with board games and RPGs, though, and while there I concluded a trade of paint shelves for a painted mini from a great friend and award-winning painter.  More about that, later.  For now...

"...Not all those who wander are lost..." 

One could consider my lack of painting miniatures - reducing the Mountain - as a long painting drought or a Summer slump.  However, I am experimenting with a paradigm shift, a new way to view 'progress' that is less unsettling and frustrating.  I am slowly realizing Real Life and Hobby Time are not separate paths or priorities competing for my attention, requiring constant adjustment to remain in balance.  Instead, it is all just a single LIFE PATH.  After all, time is a constant, flowing onward, 24x7x365.  I can neither travel forward nor backward on the path.  All I can do is choose what to do with the time I have available to me right now and plan a little for the future.

I digress.  This is all getting too philosophical for what should have been a brief update.  I may explore that topic a bit more in a future post, but for now let's just say I am decluttering and simplifying some things to free up time and energy for a couple of hobbies, including miniature painting and gaming.

  1. Dave, there's no real pressure to get anything done anytime soon. Real life and one's inner health eclipse these self policed hobby requirements.

    Until next time sir.
