Today is a Toothache Day - I'm nursing a temporary filling, enjoying the rubber lips and that lingering taste of clove oil and tooth dust that come home with you from the dentist.

Isn't it amazing how hard it is to concentrate on art or ideas while keeping company with a toothache!

All the more respect for all those many artists through history who kept on writing or painting or creating though in jail or in pain or hungry or otherwise distracted.  Bunyon's Pilgrim's Progress is the book that comes to my mind first...
