Some transitions are difficult for me. I go great guns at the work in front of me UNTIL I am interrupted or have to transition to something else. Then I seem to get lost. I have ADHD and my extreme distractibility comes into play during the transitions between activities where I am just as likely or more likely to do something stupid and inappropriate as to do what my next priority is.

One of the transitions I find most difficult is from waking to sleep--and vice versa!! Needless to say, I suffer from insomnia and tend to lay awake TRYING to sleep. This image was painted by me in artrage).
Then, after not sleeping half the night or more, Idon't want to transition back to day time, because I'm too tired!! (Click image to view larger. This image was constructed in artrage).
I forgot to make my hair grey in the original version of the second image. That's another transition I'm having trouble with--moving into being old gracefully!
I think of myself as young, beautiful, vibrant, alive, and I look in the mirror and see a tired old woman staring back at me.
My two favorite transitions I think, are from winter to spring and from summer to fall.

It's winter here, and cold, but flocks of robins feeding on the crabapples make me think spring will soon be here.

One transition I'm happy to embrace is that of being a new grandmother--though the aging part of grandmotherliness is not so much fun. I love my new new grandson!!
