Never do I put anything out here personal. This was a conscious choice I made when I began this blog. But today, I feel compelled to. Feeling Melancholy....that has been how my afternoon is shaping up. I went outside to soak up the warmth of the sun since its been so gloomy/overcast lately. Took my Somerset Studio mag with me. I was ten pages in and my focus was all over the place. Well, point being there was no focus. The sun started to hide behind some trees as mid-afternoon set in and the chilly breeze felt cooler sitting outside than before.
I have moved indoors, in my cave, put on some of my favorite, calming, meditative music - Native American Indian Flute music. It really helps to ground me and draw out what I need to purge. Right now its these dismal gloomy sad feelings in me. When I am in the cave and picking up a paintbrush, pencil, or something to create with doesn't motivate me then I know I am in a "funk".
I hope by sharing, releasing these feelings/thoughts, it will start to generate a shift in my mood and before I know it I will feel inspired, feel my creative mojo starting to bubble, and it will all lift and be replaced with much lighter, happier feelings.
