I saw a movie a long time ago (called Follow) that starred Mia Farrow as a wife of some British man who thought she was cheating on him. He hired a private investigator to watch her - the PI was Chaim Topol, an Israeli actor. He wore a long raincoat all the time and was always taking out boiled eggs from the pockets of his big raincoat. As he followed her around, he found out she wasn't cheating, just exploring and enjoying herself alone. He was already a little bit in love with her by the time he reported to the husband, who didn't believe him. I remember Topol was always saying, in this deep, mellifluous voice, "I am agonized!"
Well today, I am NOT agonized! For the first time since July 10th when this back problem arose. But just in case, I think I'll go find my raincoat and boil some eggs.
Until I'm back painting again, here's another pretty picture for you to see (and another reason to visit - I don't want to lose all my visitors while I'm unable to share new works).

and a Jewelweed (also called a Touch-me-not) with a little bee buzzing around.
