Today we are going to Muse about distraction. If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

distraction | dəˈstrakSH(ə)n
noun: a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else.
In my case recently, there have been a series of distractions and as a result you have not heard from me in several weeks. None of my “distractions” was of a serious nature. They were things like unexpected car repairs, extended croquet tournaments, a business trip. That sort of thing.
Upcoming Show Opening
Next week, Thursday April 12th, Armand Bolling Fine Art, 103 South US Highway 1, Suite F-1, Jupiter FL 33477 will host a reception 6-9 PM for a One Man show of my work. We will be showing a selection of my figurative work. It is not often that a large number of the works are shown together, so I am excited about it.
Several of the works were in Charleston, SC at the Ellis-Nicholson Gallery. They have shown my work for six years. I needed to take the gallery some replacement pieces and pick up work for the show. It is an 1100 mile drive up and back. Distraction!
Jeanette came along with me. We drove up on a Thursday. Picked up the paintings on a Friday and drove back Saturday.
Charleston was gorgeous while we were there. The weather was cool and the sky cloudless.
Really nice. We spent our free time in the historic old city center. Like everywhere now, it was teaming with tourists. The Charleston City market is always interesting to see. It is a collection of small businesses selling items, many focused on local crafts or regional items.
And, of course, there is a pretty good candy store.
And, of course, there are carriage rides for tourists.
We are back now and caught up it the “end of season” social happenings. Last week we were involved with three dinners. This coming week is scheduled to be equally busy.
