I have been going back and forth with whether or not to blog anymore at all; whether to work in one style or the other; and whether to start all over on another blog.
With my time off, I feel invigorated in a lot of ways. I feel good knowing there is more to life than a computer connection and the need to constantly put content out there. It seems odd to say that since I have been working on putting products on my “zazzle” shop. Zazzle is full of content, but I found that I was more able to work on the art for that while away from the responsibility of blogging and while spending time in the garden. Having help from my sister also freed up a lot of time I would have been spending creating products and blogging and not enjoying the work.
Something keeps drawing me back here and every excuse I have leads me back to this site. I have put a lot of effort into it over the years and I like that. It is something that I have created with all sorts of layers of thoughts, ideas, art, and content. I like what I made here and I like all the time I have spent here, though at times, I was a little off kilter. At times, I was a bit embarrassing to myself and a bit over share-y. I tend to change directions too many times and say one thing and do another, but that makes me human. And a human with an emotional illness.
Blogging is a whole world unto itself and I feel beholden to it in a lot of ways. Beholden to the idea of making a regular commitment that I don’t get a lot back from. Not to say that any of you are responsible to make me feel better about my life, but all in all, I have been at this a long time and the rewards are fallen somewhere off at the train station two countries away.
Not that the trek is not worth it, but it is a lot of work and energy to get to wherever it is that I am going.
I will take the rest of the week off and hopefully get back to a regular (what’s regular?) schedule in the following week. I just wanted to update any of you who were any bit interested in what I do here and whether I was still alive.
