Fueling Passion

Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in "From Here to Eternity"

Since the start of the new year I've felt like hibernating. Seriously. Eating cookies in bed with a stack of books beside me has been sounding mighty fine. Maybe somewhere under all those covers is my mojo. I know I am not alone in these thoughts.
.
I had three "lucky as the stars in the sky" months, but it left me with little time to sleep, plan or dream. But what it gave me, and I didn't realize until early this morning is the opportunity to now slow down. To take a new turn in my craft.
.
I have some work to do. It's something I used to do when I was in school and I loved it very much. Only this time they'll be a twist, because....I am no longer one of those people who colors inside the lines. And, I am feeling alive and awake again!
.
So, stay tuned. Still looking for your mojo? Be still, very still. Inspiration comes when you least expect it, but always in the nick of time.

Ah yes... I just made this comment on another blog...

"...in the dead of winter... I am simply not motivated to do much of anything at all! Truly I must be reptilian at heart... let me just hibernate by the woodstove with a good book and come out from the blankets only when the sun has warmed the rocks (or the deck) enough for a bit of a sunbath!"

Seems that many of us are having these "slow-down and breath" issues. Good for you that it's led to finding your mojo!

My mojo went south for the winter. :-/

I'm a cookies-in-bed-with-a-book type of person! And I'm slowing down from doing so many shows this year to do new things (writing about it in my new blog, too, to keep me on track). I have two shows in Feb and March, and then I'll really get going. I've already signed up for five art classes in enameling, riveting, metal stamping, and watercolors!

When you lose something, it is really best to let it find you...you are right!

It sounds like you are re-charging. That's about where I am too. Valuable down-time. I think of it as a cyclical 'sleeping and dreaming'. Similar to the rest we get every night. Looking forward to seeing what you've got in the works!

I needed to take some time off as well... and I didn't realize it until just a few days ago.

I thought I'd be ready to hit the ground running after the new year, but such was not true.

Glad you've found your mojo, and I can't wait to see what you do next!
