Do you have a list of activities on your 'To Do List' that get carried over from week-to-week or month-to-month - or even year-to-year?
It would appear that my 'update website and restart blog' is one such entry and it is with some surprise that I find it has not just been one year, which as a nine to five key worker I could put down to Covid-19 - but nearly six years since I last wrote an entry here about my adventures with paper, paint, scissors and glue!
The younger 2015 version of me would most likely be appalled and embarrased (and beat myself up as a failure), but the older 2021 version of me is kinder and more accepting.
Life happens and those of you that know me well know that a good bit of life has happened since I last typed in this box - and a good bit of creativity too. Infact the work that I have on here as my window to the wider world is not reflective of the work that I am doing now at all as is the creative evolution process over time.
I love the immediecy of Instagram as it indulges my 'Japanese gene' for photo taking - but of late I have re-discovered a delight of words and story telling (with thanks to Isabel Abbott for Begin [again]) and it is that which has bought me back here today
Six years is a lot to catch up on and if an experience from this timeframe sparks my muse so be it - but I certainly do not plan to attempt a chronological catch up!
One small step at a time - or few words at a time and as in the words of Elbert Hubbard "the secret to getting ahead is getting started" so here we are - beginning again.
