We moved last week. This is my new home. And my new antique hutch!
I have been absent for a long time from this blog, and I am honestly wavering on whether or not to continue- I have enough distractions.. Pinterest, Flickr, now Instagram… it all just seems so pointless sometimes. I need to spend more time actually living, rather then documenting my life. On the other hand, these tools do make me more mindful of capturing my “moments” to share- I recognize more of what is special to me, what makes me smile, and it is fun to share those things with others. I also like the idea of documenting my creative processes, especially if I start to sell my work, which I plan on doing.. someday. So I guess I will keep the ball rolling here- I’ll try not to be absent for months at a time.. I’ll try to be a “better blogger”, whatever that may be. Blogging sometimes just seems so… self absorbed? I don’t want to be that. I am trying to find a balance here.. I don’t want to over-share, I don’t want to hold back. I don’t want my creative pursuits to be tailored to an audience. But I also don’t want to keep certain things to myself. This blog, along with so many other things in life, must be about balance. I need to find that balance, find my voice; then I will feel more comfortable in this space.
This post is a little rambling, but that is how I feel inside… slightly adrift, slightly moored. I’m always in the middle of things it seems, always a contradiction. Does anyone out there know what I mean?
