I’ve not really felt like blogging, It’s not like I’ve not created anything in the last couple of weeks, but nothing blog worthy. I keep wondering where did my muse go?
Yesterday my friend Dawn gave me a pep talk reminding me that creativity, like life, has ebbs and flows. It’s like a garden that produces a lot during the growing season, but the ground needs to rest or go fallow in the winter.
I always have big ideas that in the winter I will produce more because I won’t be tempted to be outside, but in reality all I want to do in winter is hibernate.
Of course, cold, sunless days create havoc on my creative spirit.
Just recognizing that it’s okay to not be creative, eases that pressure to produce. I’ll be back soon, but right now I need to wait.
I hear you!
I just joined your site and was attracted because of your comments on losing your muse. I am 79 and every winte I also seem to lose mine. I am always sure that it will not return, but it does. But each winter it takes longer. This year I decided to stop beating a dead horse, and move on to my bucket list. Only thing left was ice dyeing…so I did…loved it…and it got me going again. I then combined it with what I had previously been doing and I am “off to the races” with that previously dead horse. Maybe we just need a rest, and not put out to pasture. Good luck and hope yours doesn’t hide as long as mine did. MaryJane Lappin in the beautiful mts. of western NC.
Besides your wonderful talents, comes the wisdom to know yourself. Watch and wait, we will too!
Luann, I find that hard to believe with you!! I was just telling Dave how you get so much accomplished. Thanks for commenting.
I feel the same way!
