did i really just post 30 straight days in a row? why yes, i believe i did. and although i may have on several occasions pushed through with some energy i didn't really have, nablopomo proved to be a great exercise for me. it got me feeling a bit hooked up again, stimulated my creative dormancy, and helped steer me away from isolation which has become all too easy as of late. so although i may not be posting daily after today, i can't wait to be a regular participant again in this here blogosphere. i know i'll have several things i'll be wanting to share that are coming up. no question i'll have to let you know every time i knock another something off the list, or will be excited to announce when our new walk with me blog comes into being, or tell you about another collaboration i'm excited about that's taking flight just this next week. somehow, by committing to this nablopomo thing, i also have a new interest in some older stagnant projects, like wanting to further expand on a line of cards i began a year ago, and get back into the 100 strangers project i started photographing nearly two years ago. there are a couple of e-courses i've had my eye on for some time, and am getting closer to feeling that the time is right for them. lately i've been quite mentally consumed with wanting to paint and delve into mixed media, along with an insatiable need to hold pastels.
these are good feelings to have, and i do believe much has been re-ignited by showing up each day to post here - having to pause and think about what kinds of creative things my heart wants to be doing - fueled greatly by you rooting me along with your fun and kind comments. thank you friends. and thank you for the help in reconnecting. it feels incredibly rewarding.
grateful today for: nablopomo, new starts, lists, embracing new rhythms, encouraging friends
