Food for the Soul....

It seems like everything is slowing down including the keypad as I am typing away right now. Maybe because i feel like a cold is going to hit me soon. I was thinking about the design for this pendant since 18 hours ago. Na and I were at our usual hangout Al Majlis Tearoom till almost midnight. I showed him the sketch of my double bat motif with Chalcedony, Pink Opal and Aquamarine. (Pale blue, pink and green). Not happy with the design, Na suggested I hold off the order I placed with B. THis morning, i woke up feeling unwell. (partly because i left the TV on & partly because of the design) I did not get any proper sleep as I was following the news the entire night. Got to work, read the papers at the cafeteria downstairs.: Headlines: HIV AIDS vaccine. " Oh didn't i hear that over the TV last nite?" Alas....I decided to abandon the bat motif and opt for something more symmetrical. 2 designs in 2 hours or so. The coffee power is not kicking in at all. And yes im babbling on....
