Be still…shhhhh….listen. Do you hear it? No? Me either. Did you read about it? Nope. I didn’t write anything. I am pretty sure there has been nothing happening on this blog other than cyber spiders building webs ( no pun intended) and electronic crickets doing their thing.
In this topsy turvy work-a-day world I inhabit there remains little time to write on my blog(or anywhere else for that matter) and it is taking it’s toll. Drafting documents and dodging excel sheets is slowly becoming second nature and the creative outlets I accessed before lie fallow at my desk. The analytical practicality of grant writing leaves little room for eloquence and the turn of an expressive phrase. Even my studio has become an echo chamber. How do I find my balance?
OK, so this is a totally self indulgent rant but it does have a purpose…I am sincerely hoping for some sort of advice that will help me accomplish a bit of balance in my life (besides signing up for a yoga class…which I just did). With two blank canvases and a pile of blank paper (not to mention the blank blog) I need to find some method to help me get to a place where I can work and still get my real (art) work done. Any ideas???
