We've been rolling with some stuff and that snow in the little snow-scene ball is still kinda floating around, so....
running, gotta get happening again. We've had a really vicious dog on my route in the fall, who seems to have gone away, and then a dead goat on the path.....and while I'm not happy about washing the dog when he's rolled in poop, I just don't want to go to dead goat, but now it seems that someone has FINALLY hauled it away, so my running route is back!!! Running on the road is like death for me SO BORING, and this is by far the flattest mountain route we can find. If you're reading this Kate, we walked the first part of it together the other day. Did I mention that? I met Kate and her man and her three dogs! SEPARATE POST ALERT!
So...the door is open again to getting my running mojo mojoing...my shoes keep looking at me accusingly, but I didn't know how to solve it. Oh...I just got another good idea too.....an all downhill run, though maybe that's not such a good idea, that's how I hurt my butt last year.
ANYWAY, drawing and painting is coming in sporadic bursts. I get a big idea and great things happen. I feel this year like I'm not painting at all, but I look at what I've produced and it's pretty cool but steady it ain't and that makes me sad. I've got this cool studio space that makes me happy simply being in it, and I'm not getting here like I want to.
So, the drawing a day is being reinstated. Half hour of drawing in the morning before I get out of bed.....and canvas a day is back. Temporarily, it isn't what I really ultimately want to be doing, but I've got to get the system ticking again, and this might be the push start I need.
I don't know about you other creatives out there, but the act of creating spawns ideas and further work, and a lag in movement, and I do think I mean movement, leads to mental atrophy as well. I come back and don't know where to start.
So! here's to disappearing dead goats and drawing in bed and making something every single frickin day.
