Start your engine .. cough ..cough

Wow, it has been awhile since my last post. Really sorry about that friends and fans, life sorta ran my car off the road. Not really going to go into the details about the personal hell I've been living in, just know that I'm putting the jumper cables on the battery and trying to get my creative engine running again.

I've picked up the clay a bit over the last few days and have managed to work on some projects that have been neglected way too long. Poor things. Funny thing about creative juice and hellish times. Even though it feels good to sit at my table and work at my art it is still a struggle to put my butt in the chair and pick up the clay to start working each day. I know I should be doing this each day, I know I have goals I want to reach, I know it makes me feel good when an idea becomes something a person can hold ..... I know all of this but a big part of my brain still wants to curl up in a corner and just let the world go by. Hellish times, things happening that I can't fix, feeling very alone and isolated makes all the things I know seem ...... difficult, painful, out of my reach.

Do you know this feeling? I hope not.

Unfortunately I do. I'm sorry to hear that you are dealing with so much in your life. I'd love to be bright and cheery and say it'll get better. Not knowing your situation, it would be foolish and unhelpful. So instead I wish for you flowing creativity. And I sincerely hope that happens and brings a spot of joy to you.

I too can relate. Hang in there. Things will get better. It may seem like it takes forever, but it will eventually turn around. Hopefully, your creative side will provide an outlet for your emotions and help you to process everything.

Tamara, I do know what you mean. But art is therapy. Love your work and take that darkness and make it into something you can share with the world.
