Clearly, there should be some sort of Blogging Reconciliation Room (i.e. Confessional) where I could plead: Excuse me Blogger for slip sliding away. My last posting was 53 days ago. These are my mea culpas: laziness, grumpiness, stubbornness, unsociableness and pity-party-selfishness.
Now, what act of penance do I make and how do I amend my life? I think I've been self-punishing myself by NOT getting my tuckus in the studio. It's time for this lethargy to end.
Weekly collages for weeks 12 and 13 (karma and bhaga):
Creative every day: 125 of 365 done!
Creatively... what have I been doing? Not much. I have managed to keep up with my daily doodle - 16 square centimeters that kept me on creative life support. Playing the piano and violin slipped to about four days a week.
Talking with a friend over tea yesterday, we both acknowledge that we were in a malaise of sorts. Lots of factors may be contributing: our age; the recession; aging parents; friends dying; children of friends dying; thinking about the future; not thinking about the future... we sang a chorus of What's it all about Alfie? had some more tea and a second Walkers Stem Ginger Biscuit.
Time to shake it off! Get back to work and stop the wallowing. I didn't do any weekly collages in April and I really like the Hebrew script! Now for the month of May I planned the Devanagari script. Surely, I can get nine weeklies done by the end of the month. Oh... and get back to the sketchbook. It's a start.
