Three glorious days (including leaving work early on Wednesday) have gone by and not a single stitch has been sewn. Not. One. Don't get me wrong; the desire to sew and create is overwhelming. Though when it comes to actually doing something, nada. My sewjo is a fugitive on the run and it's been like this for the last few weeks.
I'm not productive at the pottery studio either. When my sewjo takes a break, I can usually keep the creative juices going at the wheel. This time around? Nothing. I might try to go in today for a marathon bowl-throwing session for an upcoming charity event. We'll see. Right now, my mind says 'meh.'
I know what's causing the drag in my motivation. I've experienced a number of heartbreaking disappointments over the last couple of months and it's taking me some time to get over it. From finally realizing it is time to let go of two situations to regaining almost all the weight I lost last year, "being stuck" is the best way I can describe my current emotional and creative state. Thankfully I have some very supportive and loving friends in my life with really strong and water-resistant shoulders.
That's all for now.
