Introductions and Reflections
Today I realized that there was a part of myself that had not been getting out. Self-censorship on another blog for fear of alienating/offending those who read and Self awareness of all the things I should not say were holding me back. In addition to that has been a lack of time and lack of internal process for I would say the past 4 or 5 years. Children will do that to you. I do not mean and would never suggest that my children are at fault for my artistic constipation. I would say I’ve allowed myself to become so completely enmeshed in their lives that I’ve forgotten to attend to mine.
I have lost my way and my voice, in a world of blogging I have been recording the mundane and not asking the questions which are always in the back of my mind for fear of the answers. This world where we claim we don’t have enough time, we make ourselves too busy to think; fluttering through life and not paying attention to the moments of worth as they occur. I am going to attempt to reclaim those moments. My goals are to make my time something of value: to be fully engaged in the things I spend my time on.
