More postcards, and lack of motivation....

 

  

  

  

 



So, these are the last half of my postcards for the swap.  You can check out the fabulous pieces that have been created all over the world here.  It's so cool to see everyone's unique styles.

Thank you for the kind words.  I think I am just having a bit of a block.  It seemed to surface while working on the postcards.  And things here in my city are trying to return to normal.  And I am having a bit of trouble returning to a routine that not only 2 weeks ago I was so enjoying.  I spend all day at work worrying about my parking place when I return late at night.  (The snow has severely limited parking that was limited even before).  Not feeling motivated, and then when I am not making artwork or running I get grumpy and then I don't feel motivated.  An endless circle that I must break.  I will by the end of the week....I hope.  

Yesterday I received my first postcard from Minnesota.  So beautiful.  I was truly excited to find it in the mail box.  Knowing 9 more are coming my way is fabulous.  I received another surprise as well from a dear friend in Denver, who I miss terribly.  I'll leave you with the quote from that card. 

"Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person- having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away." - Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life 1859

And on that note, I am going to be positive today and just let the day take care of itself without trying to control it or worry.  Here I go....
