Singing the blues...

My year has started with me singing the blues... 

Yup I am feeling a bit on the low side, with low energy, an injured shoulder (keeping me from my studio), low creative mojo and low life mojo.  I am still trying to find how I'm going to move forward this year, trying to reflect and regroup after my incredible 2016 year.

Part of my problem is that I didn't go away for the holidays.  I know that sounds terribly indulgent and I really don't mean it like that.  I just find when I stay home - I don't force myself to rest.  I carry on because let's be honest, there is always so much to do.

When my creativity is at an all time low - I usually turn to my camera and to creative play to help me find my way.  And I have to say, it's definitely helping lift my spirits and I'm starting to feel a precious spark of excitement and vision...

 I need some quiet time to reflect and appreciate my 2016 and plan for my 2017.  I never got that time now in the holidays so it's left me feeling a little panicked and one step behind.  I spent most of this week catching up with work admin and focused on some marketing work for my exhibition.  But I'm keeping next week open for some walking, writing and reflecting and planning and to be honest, I can't wait.
