After a few months (away from, rather than off) I feel a bit distant from it all. I’ve been in a frame of mind of not really wanting to think about Hidden Landscapes or my art work and not really having room for it. I’ve been very happy to just be full-time mummy and concerntrate on nothing else. Being so immersed in my 18 month old son’s world is often such a powerful way to just be there in the moment, leaving no time to ponder past successes or failures. He now wakes up every morning, suddenly able to sound out a new word, fit a new puzzle piece, play out a new dance move…watching this discovery of his own body, his ability for self-expression and personal interaction, is pure joy, and there is only one way he’s looking and that is on to the next thing. I’m taken along with him, wondering how he can maintain the energy and hoping I can prevent as many injuries as possible along the way.
I have a studio day lined up for this week, the first for quite sometime and I can’t quite work out how I’m going to get my head back into that mode. Will it just be one of those never quite get started days or most likely, one spent with my head in admin!
What I really need is a fast track to ideas and inspiration… or maybe just a cuppa, a chat and a squiggle in my note book. (lets keep things realistic)
