I've had a bad case of squirrel brain this week. I don't know about you all, but the holiday season can really get my gears spinning in all kinds of directions. It's probably all the glitter and tinsel. I can't look away from the sparkly.
Here it is almost Friday and I really don't have a clear idea of what
I've accomplished this week. I think my brain must resemble an enormous
Pinterest-like collection of images. They would be organized into boards
ranging everywhere from "cleaning projects I want to finish before
December 24th" to "fun things to do with the kids before December 24th"
to "crafts I want to make before December 24th."
On top of that, I would have my anxiety boards including things like "do
we need to buy a new car soon?" or "how am I going to start bringing in
some money" or "why don't I have a clearly defined mission statement?"
or "what am I doing?" or worse..."are my children really happy?" It's a rabbit hole.
I've been working on some collages for a friend. I realized the crazy
colors and movement really represented how I was feeling. Perhaps these could be viewed as snapshots of my current brain activity.
I think the only way out of this rabbit hole is to stop, turn around, and climb out. Turn off the computer. Close the studio door. Take a hot shower. I might even hide my glasses so that I can't see anything unless it is at least a foot away. That would eliminate any detail work. I would be forced to look up!
Have a great weekend, friends. I'll be back on Monday. Glasses poised.
