Do you promise to not think I'm losing it? (Well, I am... a little bit.)
You know the messages I put on my artwork? Fly... Dream... Seek Big Adventures? Yep, those messages. Well, I put them out into the world for you, but...
I make those messages for me.
Because I need to hear them and see them. OFTEN. They keep me moving forward. They remind me of where I want to go and why I am here. They keep me sane.
"Old" collage with message I need to hear. Oh yeah, and I'm posting "old" art because new art just isn't happening right now.
What IS happening right now is that I'm going through a time of complete upheaval because my job is taking over my life. There's no breathing room, no thinking room, no peace. NO ART.
I have to think this is only temporary. My sanity REQUIRES me to think this is only temporary. If I've learned anything over the years it's that these kinds of upheavals don't last forever. There has to be a break. I'm just trying to keep it together until that break appears. I'm trying to be nice to myself and keep all the other pressures to a minimum wherever I can. Which isn't easy. But I'm going to keep trying.
