OK, it is COLD in my house right now – 52 degrees – and my body is telling me to put on more clothes. I have two layers on the bottom half and three layers on top. Now, it is only in the teens outside, but it turned cold very quickly and I’m just not ready for it. My office is in my home, and when my house is cold my office is cold as well. I really need to get better windows in my office – and drywalling over the paneling would provide additional insulation as well. Oh, all the things I could/should do.
I think I will blame the cold on my inability to post anything lately. I’m not sure how true that is, but it makes as much sense as anything else.
The next art exhibit at my church is in January, and the topic is AIDS NOW, LEADERSHIP NOW. I have thoughts about what to do for this project, but not really the energy or enthusiasm to do it at the moment. I can’t really do the cultural artifact art right now because of the fumes from the adhesive, so I will work on some different forms of Encaustic (working with wax and heat) for the piece – if I get the energy together to do it.
I don’t appear to be the only person finding it hard to get motivated these days. Over and over again I run into people suffering from either seasonal depression from lack of light, or sadness around the holidays from the loss of a loved one, or just a heavy attitude due to the complexities of life with regards to the economy. All of these folks are finding it difficult to get things done. I guess I’m in good company.
Here is to putting one foot in front of the other and moving on…
