Hanging Back

Okay, I know, I know.  I have neglected this blog in a horrible way.  I apologize to the 2 people who actually read it, lol.  I have (now as an app on my phone, to prove how crazy things have been in the last few weeks) multiple lists of things to do, one of them a list devoted solely to blog entries I've been wanting to write.  A growing list of things I've noticed and want to type my two cents on, but haven't been able to, because I've been trapped under a big rock and couldn't reach the keyboard.  Well, not really a rock, just swept up in the wave of everyday life and things that demand attention because they are piling up and I'm the only one to address them.  To make matters even more, er, interesting, I've spent the last two months battling a heinous sinus infection (or acute sinusitis, as my now growing body of research calls it)
awaiting my return...
and juggling that with a profound sense of burnout and apathy about my creative pursuits.  The likes of which I have not experienced since one other occasion way back in highschool, when I defiantly declared that I planned to stop the art altogether and be more "normal".  
parts arranged and abandoned :o(
For all of a week, I managed to keep all of my projects and ideas closed off in a little room my parents had allowed me to use as a sort of studio.  Somehow, I ended up creeping right back in there.  Or something drew me back in there, whatever.  I couldn't stay away.  And that was the longest I had gone without drawing, painting, sculpting, etc., ever.  Until recently. 

maybe later, siiighh
Fortunately, just like back then, after allowing myself a sort of hiatus to shut off the creative machine to just rest and get well physically, and to address some things in other areas of my life, it's slowly returning, the wheels of tireless inspiration are squealing back into motion.  It's funny how after a rest, it seems to come back stronger than before, lol.  And I earnestly hope, that with it I can get back on track with 1+ entries here a week.  I think it's good for me to write this, and I really hope someone else gets a little something from it, too.  Inspired, and I wish you inspiration...
