Yesterday I turned in my job paperwork. The Forest service people are all so nice and seem happy to have me on board. Monday I will train then Thursday I will start. I think this will be fun!
My art has taken a nosedive! I wonder why I sometimes go for 3 weeks at a time with no impetus to do art. Sometimes it is the foul weather that bogs me down, sometimes it can be having disagreements with the Hubby. It isn't fair to use him as an excuse..although somedays he seems like the blackhole of pessimism and insecurity. Not that he is that way on purpose. So why in 32 years have I not learned how to deal with that?
Some times I feel paralyzed in front of the TV! I have been way too sedentary..so starting the job should help. Also I need to start walking again..forcing myself out of bed early.
Will this help my art? I think so.
What do you do to get out of the doldrums?
I thought having many projects and deadlines would help and I think it will..once I get moving.
I think too I need to take a sketchbook with me to the canyon for slow times. If I force myself to do a page a day for a month will it become the habit I wanted to have?
I think I had hoped to have life all figured out by now. And that seems just as silly as anything I have ever thought!!!
So I have been reading a lot of art books and getting ideas for some experimental techniques to try.
Maybe I need to get the grass out of my little garden and give the iris a boost.
Sigh..seem to be circling that blackhole.
