Ironically, perhaps, I spent the blizzard week in Texas in a local hospital having doctors try to get my heart to beat normally. Over a week before my admission I had suffered alone and, like a lot of guys, stubborn and adamant that I would somehow 'cure' myself. I could have had a stroke or a full blown heart attack. Thankfully, so far this has not happened but as I begin to regain my strength I also contemplate a cocktail of drugs which costs over 700 dollars a month. How long will I need them; how long can I afford them? So I am truly 'guardedly optimistic' as I move forward. This is a 4 by 3 inch gel pen drawing made since my release Saturday. I notice my eyesight has suffered during this period so let's hope Original Jones Art will continue for awhile here in northwest Austin, Texas.
