Lohbado arguing with himself. Sometimes the restless mind gets carried away. It's good to have a look at one's mind, to relax and let go of the thoughts. It's amazing how easy it is to stir up conflict, to create problems where there were none and then to find elaborate, inconvenient solutions to the problems you created.

Lohbado worked for a painting company two summers in a row, then formed his own company. He remembered placing forty-foot ladders, climbing to forth and fifth story balconies. He would stand on the balcony rail to paint hard to reach spots. He also used a step ladder to paint the top of window and balcony door frames. Sometimes people were inside. He fantasized about being invited in to have some fun. It never happened. He painted many buildings. No drama, other than paint drips here and there, or getting hot, exhausted, sore muscles. He carried a lot of gear up the long ladder. He carried a step ladder, drop sheet, a bucket, screen, rollers, brushes, a roller pole, rags. He had to be fast and neat.
