ok... it has been a while. I don’t think I have ever neglected to talk to you guys for this long before. I didn’t really want to come on here during that time because I didn’t want to share my troubles with everyone and be a outright downer. That and I didn’t have any time to do anything..
anyway an explanation is in order.
The last time we talked, almost two months ago on June 16 I was heading up to to Oregon for my cousin’s wedding Recital. (and my first real vacation in over a year). I arrived at their house at about 1am and got to bed. I got up late and got myself breakfast, while I was eating I got a call from the California Highway Patrol. About 500 miles away in California four of my family members were in their Honda Odyssey heading up for the wedding. They were stopped behind a row of cars at a red light.
Well a girl in her early 20's wasn't paying attention (looking at her cellphone) She struck the Odyssey doing about 70 mph.. in her 3500 pavement princess causing a 5 car pile up and totaling every car involved. my family members were Unconscious and flown to separate hospitals. Emanuel Medical,UC Davis and Valley Children’s. My Dad had several broken vertebrae and a concussion, it is doubtful he will be able to preform his job anymore, my youngest sister Lynea (9) had a concussion and her cranial injuries has required a complete facial restructuring among other surgeries. My youngest brother Merrick (13 years old) has been in a comma ever since the accident, his serious brain injuries means that he will probably never return to any state of self dependence. This incident has caused an enormous amount of grief for my family.

Since the crash I have been working on their house, widening doors, knocking out walls, installing wheelchair ramps and reflooring / re-tiling along with rebuilding the bathrooms to be wheelchair accessible, all to prepare for their eventual return.
In the end it is simply a miracle that any of them survived. I went to the wrecking yard to get some things out of the van after the accident. I took some pictures of it, I wont post them because they are fairly disturbing. But that car looked like a crushed Soda can with far more blood than I was expecting.
All that and keeping up with projects at work has kept me very busy, pretty tired and somewhat angry.
Not trying to be a complete downer, Just letting you guys know…

Well anyway... tonight, assuming I get off of work early enough I will dust off my tablet, boot up Photoshop and attempt to do some art.
