You haven’t heard from me in awhile….because everyone else is sucking my time…and soul. Like you I have the best laid plans for the day or week but then my time begins to get sucked up by things and people (most of them I love to death).
My husband has been out of state for the week and I had sooooo been looking forward to time alone so I could paint, work on a project I am creating, clean the studio, eat ice-cream for dinner, take a long fall walk in the woods but NOOOOOOOOO. Little by little people who depend upon me needed my help and I cannot say no to those I love. I had a 99 yr old cousin (Betty) who is alone and scared of death – I go and see her everyday. One of my daughters is a single mother and her youngest had no school today so needed me to have him over night and until she got off work today. Someone rear ended my car so it is in the shop and that is a pain in the ass…insurance claims, estimates, car rentals.
I yearn for my studio. Uninterrupted creative time…no clocks, no obligations…just paint and listen to jazz. Currently I am working on a new project of painting canvas panels to hang from carved wooden rods. Tomorrow I promise myself studio time and will post new photos soon.
Does this happen to you? What is sucking your time?
