Flying Girl and the Umbrella, or Learning the Dance of the Balance
Golden Acrylics on paper 6x9"
It is quite a struggle lately for me to put up my posts, I'm finding. I'm still painting, but all the computer stuff is not getting done quite as thoroughly.
Sometimes I get frustrated and think there is something wrong.
But sometimes I realize that there is a reason for not being as on top of things as I have been in the past.
First of all, the economy has hit us rather hard. And it's not the end of the world, but it does make things difficult and the mood can take a hit.
But beyond that, I'm realizing that I actually have less time to work than I used to. I don't have as much computer time, because I am sharing time with S. (I don't mention him much, because the blog isn't really about him.) And the children are changing their habits. G is getting ready to drop his nap. Horrors! And Ivy likes to keep his wakefulness company. Plus, there are a few other things that have taken my attention.
This is a new movement to the dance that I have been trying to balance and sometimes we need to recognize our own need to step back and learn the steps a little better before diving back in to just boogie away.
All right. I don't know if that metaphor makes sense, but I have to go because my various responsibilities call to me.
Someday I'll be more present, I think. Until then, I'm just going to have to pop in now and again, drop my posts, and pop back out. I have faith that this is just part of the process.
Oh yeah, this is a prompt from Inspiremethursday, and is "Umbrella."
