Waiting Out a Squall. When I showed this painting to my husband, he said, โ€œWow. Iโ€™m not a psychiatrist, but I wonder why you chose to paint that, a boat, all rigged and ready to go, sails on, on the trailer, in a storm. I can sure read what youโ€™re up against into that.โ€ We both paused, took sips of coffee and watched as a man expertly parallel parked a few feet in front of us. โ€œIt really is beautiful, but a boat on a trailer? Donโ€™t you think it is metaphorical, for your state now.โ€ The man squeezed behind his car to pass in front of us as I I pondered it, and yes, he was right, the scene was metaphorically like me, gloomily stuck ashore whirling in the storm of a serious injury. โ€œDid you intend that? If not, Iโ€™d say subconsciously you hit the nail on the head, donโ€™t you think?โ€ โ€œI didnโ€™t mean for it to be about me. But it is interesting. I just wanted to render rain.โ€ I thought of the other subject I considered, my own boat sitting on the trailer, but without the rain. โ€œBut you do have a point. It is reflective, isnโ€™t it. Iโ€™m stuck not being able to do what is normal for me.โ€ I looked at the painting on his phone and recalled the deep feeling of longing when I finished it, remembering how it was cathartic to add the streaks of rain. โ€œYouโ€™ll be off that trailer soon baby.โ€ โ€œYes, letโ€™s hope so. Soon.โ€ We stood and walked home. I walked without a crutch, thinking, โ€˜Yep, soon.โ€™
