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.
