We all go through them and right now, it’s my turn. The reason I haven’t been posting as regularly or frequently as I usually do is because doing so is currently quite challenging. My artistic pursuits have taken a back seat to other, more pressing issues that require my full attention. My mind isn’t on it, either, to be perfectly honest. There’s only so much “stuff” you can process, at a time, without driving yourself around the bend completely.
As and when I am able to post some more ideas and thoughts, I will, of course. Art is not something you can actually give up entirely. It’s an integral part of you, or at least it is for me. Sometimes, it gets crowded out by other aspects of your life, but I find solace in art, so I’m glad to have the ability to find tranquillity and peace, through creating things.
My hope is that, once I have gotten past this current round of difficulties, I will be able to spend time with my art in earnest and maybe with a reinvigorated passion for it. It feels that way. Right now, it feels as though I am being denied the resources to do as much with it as I would ideally like. I also feel distracted, demotivated and disillusioned with most aspects of existence, because of the current (hopefully) temporary difficulties. Please wish me well in overcoming them.
Thank you for your patience and for being a loyal reader of this blog. I enjoy writing it and I especially love the interaction with people who take time to comment and share their thoughts.
There will be more writing, but not right now.
