Today life felt like a dream…not a good one or a bad one, just a dream. I chose to not leave the house, nor really the couch, as it was windy and rainy, and a little disappointing as we expected a huge snowstorm, received elsewhere, but we had nada. This image of our house, created by Tori blowing a bubble while playing with Forest this past August, has our home reflected and reversed. That’s what today felt like. I find it hard to just relax, without a purpose or goal. I want to feel creative, not feel as though I’m in a bubble, yet clearly the past weeks and sickness demanded just that. How I rage against what I think I want when I don’t have it. Double-Bubble talk. Also spent a lot of time looking at all the photos of 2012, and taking none. That kind of day.

    Wishing I was there Barb…we could paint together and feel like we accomplished something…if only to accomplish having some time spent enjoying being frustrated at painting badly or painting over our landscapes and making flower pots…I went to the studio today and yesterday and didn’t feel like I accomplished much..but that’s how I feel most days..and that’s what this time of year does, doesn’t it? I find I feel lazy and don’t like it…I like the way summer makes me feel much better…I don’t think I need a whole season of winter to relax and chill out…I’d rather chill out with a gin and tonic on a beach….It’s probably so different for you this year with not going away, isn’t it?.. cheers dolling!…xo

    I know each day is different, but sometimes you’d like to know in advance…and the weather is definitely not as motivating as summer weather…but I’ll adjust again. Today I’m cleaning up my studio…always good for my soul. Love comments, also good for my soul.

    I look at those kind of days as “recharging batteries” for more productive days ahead.
