Finding inspiration

Standard

I’m feeling quite uninspired these past two weeks. I’ve only managed to drag my ass into the studio twice a week and I’m feeling quite drained. Let’s brainstorm shall we? Tell me what you do to be inspired. What are your rituals to induce those creative juices to flow? Where do you draw energy from? Who or what inspires you?

I’ve accepted so many invitations to different art shows and gatherings etc. but can’t seem to muster up the energy or excitement to attend. I know I’m missing a lot of great vernisage but I just can’t seem to drag my ass out of the house. I think this might be the winter blahs and lord knows we’ve had a very hard cold winter..its still threatening to hang on for dear life. Or…….

I know I’m kind of waiting for my life to start anew again this month but that is just it, I’m waiting. Waiting is not at all inspirationall. So I wait and want, want and wait. I also pray that this lethargy ends when I get my space and place to myself again in the middle of the month.

No matter what the cause or reason for my inaction…even if I find out why…it won’t make a difference. What will make a difference is making a choice. I can be committed to bitching about it or I can be committed to doing something about it. The last choice is doing absolutely nothing about it but no bitching allowed. HMMMMMM. what shall I do?

I’m really praying hard for spring. The birds outside my bedroom window were very loud this morning. I’m hoping they know something I don’t know.

THE bucket list

Standard

Everyone has a bucket list right?  All those crazy things you want to do, see, people you want to do, see. I have a bucket list of art galleries and museums that I simply must see before I leave this planet. These are not in order of preference or importance. They are all important and all a must see for me. What does your list look like?
