This painting captures my mood and state of mind, as it must for all people who are under the overwhelming pressure of deadlines.

Hang in there everyone, it's the life we chose.

Gustave Courbet — The Desperate Man (self-portrait) — 1845

"Honor does not lie in a title or a ribbon;
it lies in actions and the motives for actions . . ."— Courbet

It so is. I wish I could be like Douglas Adams who said "I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by", but I'm not!
