Lolita has a dear lover, Lizard King. You can see his pic along with some other boy friends at the side bar. Lizard King is not an artist, per se, just a sexy reptile who is comfortable with himself and generous with his friends. Lizard is one of these reptiles that is often a few minutes late for work, but nobody bugs him too much about it because he is such a dam pleasure to have around.
This quality of being at ease with one’s self, of being available emotionally, intellectually, physically, for the unexpected that each day brings, is really something to look at. When the artist becomes fully engaged in a new project, she begins to feel that slightly uncomfortable tug, that combination of desire to complete the work and to share – yes – to enjoy some recognition. It is helpful to balance this natural tension, this desire for completion, with some valuing of the in-process stages. After all, we are always in process with something.
If anyone will tell you, Lizard will, that the notion of being “finished” with anything is rather flawed.
You and Lizard both have really learned this lesson well. Something is waiting for you to polish and show today – you have trained yourself to cool the burning jets enough to see the low-hanging fruit in front of your eyes. And the satisfaction of polishing something each day gives you patience and clarity for your work that is just beginning to see light.
