Having a baby - in like, 5 seconds

Having a baby - in like, 5 seconds image

Hi Friends,
As many of you know, and some of you do not, I’m due to deliver a baby boy in about 12 days.

I’ve been doing my best to stay active and busy during this time - sorta “business as usual” approach - but as you may be able to imagine, some of the physical limitations that now govern my decisions are making me tired, restless, and less able to push forward than in previous days. I’ve got an extra 30 lbs limited solely to the frontal abdomen that are consuming resources, weighing me down, throwing me off-balance, you name it. The good news is, it’s only temporary. The other good news is - the joy of being a first-time parent for me and my spouse is just around the corner.

In the coming days before I go to the hospital, I will expend as much energy as I can find to do art, this website, keep you updated on everything, etc. I just don’t know how long I have, and I want you to know that I think about writing to you every day. I’ll be a mom in a minute, and a whole new lot of topics will become part of this blog.

I’ll be putting my feet up a bit too, as you may expect. I deserve it, right?

Caroline C. Blaker is an artist who maintains three bodies of artwork: oil on canvas paintings, latex paintings on a variety of surfaces, and digital images derived directly from data. All of these are abstract; and pursue, in their own ways, her fascination with the idea of Infinity, and its confluent perfection and momentary impossibility. More about the author
