Creative Every Day–Week 8

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This was the first week that felt out of my grasp, I was vacant and distracted. Yet, I found moments of deep relaxation and joy.  I took a promotion at work which brings me back to full-time status.  I spent the last 4 months gearing up for change, committing to my art. But the practical came rushing back in. I took the job. What does this mean? Will I continue to accomplish in my creative life?

So today, I took strongly to procrastination and laziness. I still managed to  put four new framed photos in the gallery, visit with artists and friends, play games, and cook an awesome dinner. And posted my weekly CED 2011 chronicle on Monday (albeit at night, but not late).

The close of Febraury has me questioning my Passion. That scares me! But I look forward to March’s optional theme of Nest. Can I put my hopes and dreams into a NEST. Will they protect and cradle my dreams. Will I have the energies to come home and sit on that nest?
