Soon, Soon.

Jacques Raczej-Podróbka  : Conspiracy Series - Green 43 (1956)
I am being held hostage by a conspiracy of events of dubious and minor significance. In themselves, none of them are worth a speck of dust in a junk shop, but together they form a debilitating blanket of sloth and indolence. From the outside, it may look as though I have given in, laid down my arms, and accepted my fate as a prisoner of war with equanimity; but be assured that deep within me beats a rebellious pulse that will soon rise again and smash asunder these shackles of lethargy. Soon, soon.

  1. It's not called "retirement" is it? I believe retired people end up busier than the employed.

    1. "I did, of course", replies Alan to the question Jane and Lance didn't ask.

  3. Would "Get well soon" be appropriate? If not, tuck the message back and bring it out when you do need it. Jim

  5. I hear you! Only my problem isn't indolence and sloth, it's lack of time, what with the full-time job and the time taken to get there and back.

  7. Sloth, indolence and lethargy? Hmmm. Sounds a bit like my life recently. Not such a bad thing really.

    This is an interesting painting. I'd never heard of Jacques Raczej-Podróbka previously. Did you do this Alan?

  8. Someone told me that retirement is a journey, not a destination. Seems that you're travelling through colourful territory, Alan.

  9. 'Sloth and indolence'? Is this what is depriving us of the pleasure of your wit and insightful observations? Shame :(

    1. I wouldn't know the meaning of the word "enigmatic". What do you think of the work of Jacques Raczej-Podróbka?

  12. I'm doing a workshop for painters and models this weekend...I suggest he enroles.

    At Sunnyside Sec. Mod. they taught us the English Laungage. Enigmatically it seems the same cannot be said for the smart Alecs that went to Crossley and Porter.
