mixed media collage on paper
Some times it is hard to get it all done...the social networking, blogging, art making, marketing, teaching, gardening, house keeping, putting by the produce from the garden. The list goes on.
So some of the items from above get neglected. It seems that I concentrate on one or two of these
aspects of my creative life and let others slide by. For awhile it was the Instagramming that got neglected. I have barely looked at Facebook in at least a month. And this blog has also suffered from my lack of attention.
But the garden is beginning to wind down, although these warm October days are keeping
things going longer than usual. I am seeing that I will have more studio time and hopefully more time to
write, both here and in my journal ( another neglected element).
I love all these aspects of my life.
But I need to put some perspective on some of what I do and perhaps narrow
down my expectations for what I can accomplish and accomplish well.
Fall is a good time to "fall back and regroup", assessing how I can keep up with it all.
Or perhaps find those things that are the most relevant and keep up with those.
Lest you think that blogging is one of the elements that I will terminate, I am here
to tell you that I am not ready to give this up. I find that it allows me to make some of my inner musings
more concrete through the act of writing or typing. It is a way to sort my thoughts, prioritize,
clear my head, prep for the day. The blogging may be less often, but I need it in my daily ritual.
