Thinking About My Bird At The Dentist

The last time I was at the dentist I got the idea for my Meditation Tree.   Today, in my mind, I was going through my stash of fabric trying to find something to make my bird from for my new fabric painting of the maple tree and bird. 

I was having the prep work done for a crown and I found when I thought about something other than what was actually going on, I was less uncomfortable.

I did that for a while, but I was in the chair for almost an hour and a half.  Apparently I have a small mouth and it was hard to get at my tooth.  But I was just glad that my dentist,  Dr Merryman (he is as happy as his name) took the extra time to do it right.

So after that I just looked at what I could see in front of me. Mostly parts of  hands, masked faces, long tools and little round lights, all of it somewhat abstracted.   I’d go over it in my mind as if I were drawing it.

That worked too.

But by the time  it was all done, I was worn out.  I took a nap when I got home, but I’m still tired.  Luckily the hard work is done. In a couple of weeks, I’ll go back and have the crown fitted.

Then I’ll be chewing on both sides of my mouth again.

  1. I do the same thing when at the dentist…try and think of something I’m excited about or looking forward to. I understand with having a small mouth. Seems the older I’ve gotten it’s also hard to open wider and keep my mouth open. Last time I had over an hour of work, my jaw wouldn’t stop shaking. The dentist gave me lots of breaks and would massage my jaw. He’s cute too, so it was kinda nice. 😉

    1. Ha! its good to have a good dentist Barb. I feel more comfortable when the dentist and they people they work with get along well. Somehow it’s the atmosphere of the place as well as well as the people who make it a better expereice. But then I guess the people do make the place!
