One of Garth Brooks' earliest hits was a song called "Much Too Young (To Feel this Damn Old)". There's no question that this thought was on my mind as I completed this drawing.
It amazes me how incredibly tired I have been lately. Tonight I decided to watch a movie on TV. I fell asleep on the sofa, only to wake up around 12:30 in the morning . . . self-portrait still needing to be completed. The worst part of all is that I don't feel like I waste a lot of time, but each day before I know it, 8:00 pm, or 9:00 pm, or 10:00 pm has arrived. Even worse yet is that I feel like I need a two hour nap every afternoon.
I sure hate this feeling. As I approach a "milestone" birthday, I dread entering another decade with chronic fatigue. Damn, I'm turning into something I don't want to be!
