On Saturday I delivered 48 framed prints to the gallery for hanging. Friday
midnight I felt like I was at mile 20 of a marathon, where runners usually
hit "the wall". For those who have yet to run a marathon, "the wall" is
where your energy reserves are totally depleted, all hope is gone, the
dementors are moving in for the kill and you still have 6.2 miles left to
run. IIRC it's where I swore I'd never run again as long as I lived.

The nagging questions I had were:

) are my homemade frames good enough?
) do I have enough to fill the gallery space?
) did I print everything too small?
) is the gallery owner going to tell me I f***ed it all up and now he has
nothing for the month of April?

Saturday morning driving to the gallery was like mile 26: legs are
cramping, knees are wobbly, energy reserves and brain activity are beyond

As I brought the prints into the gallery the crowds began cheering! The
gallery owner loves the prints, the gallery's framer was delighted with my
frames, mats, everything, and there's plenty to fill the space. The owner
summed it up: "This is going to be a great show".

BTW I didn't quit running.
