you just start somewhere

In the annual purge that takes place in January, i found an old “mark making” journal. A period of mixed media and a lot of colour, it was my antidote to living and working in my MIL’s basement, a horrible place and situation in many ways. “Notes from Mother Nature”  was made in October of 2008.

My “epiphany” is gelling, if indeed epiphanies do gel. Reflective searching thought, and research has led back to some ideas, but unless i actually start somewhere, nothing will take form. Simple, right? There are many many parts i wish to use again: the studio worktable is a jumble of sketches, fabrics, notes and paper scraps.

So, start small, because small can become big when the sum of the parts become the whole dance.

  1. You may, or may not(!), notice that i have disabled the “like” button on posts, starting with Jan 21st of this year. It’s starting to feel like FB where people “react”, but never actually say anything. Blogging is about interaction, and as guilty as i myself am sometimes for doing that, i’m feeling if i *do* “like” something, it might be/is helpful, encouraging or validating to someone to actually SAY what i mean. Trying to change that habit myself!

  2. Just what I’ve been telling myself . . . Unless I start somewhere, nothing will take for . . . trouble is, mostly, I’ve been starting another novel instead!
    Sometimes I comment and sometimes I “like” but I never “like” out of politeness, I’m just not that polite: I “like” because I really do but have nothing to add.
