Survived the Swine Flu and I'm not dead.

I've never really gotten the whole fear based America thing, I'm not into fear much and I think whatever happens you pretty much deal with and move on. So this Swine Flu scare is interesting to me, I started getting sick about 8 days ago, 4 days with the high fever and another 4 with an annoying cough that makes it really hard to sleep. I know there can be complications (course that can happen with a cold as well), but truely I've been much sicker than this.

What does this have to do with art? Absolutely nothing (although I like the little illustration of the flu bug). In fact I haven't painted in my studio in a very long time. With traveling and painting murals at HuHots in Kenosha Wisconson, Dubuque Iowa, Des Moines Iowa and next week in Springfield Missouri, there doesn't seem to be any time to commit to canvases.
