Monday Monday... be good to me!!


Well I trust we are all rested and raring to get our New Year Week Started?? HMMMMM!!!
Boy I had every intention of doing just that very thing... but as I look at the clock and realize it is already 11:30 AM (mountain time) I am beginning to think that this first Monday of the New Year is not as organized and rock'em sock'em as I had hoped it would be... more of a two step forward one step back kinda day...but alas the day is still fairly young so anything is possible.
This is actually my first day 'back' (didn't really go anywhere I just place 'me' in a self appointed time out from work and life for a few weeks prior to Christmas..hoping to regenerate the old batteries etc) ... and truth be told...it worked wonderfully. I feel more energetic, at least 20 minutes younger, and have a clearer view of so called artistic horizon .. but... as it always is with me... frustration and confusion smacks me along side of the head with that ever nagging questions of "Now What"??.."Jodi, what do you want to do first"??..."Where do you think you should start"?? "You didn't plan this very well did ya sista"?? "You lookin at me" ???? ...I could go on...
I have never been one to plan well..organization is not one of my stronger suits...I am more of a fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal. I had hoped that while on my 'time out' ..I would discover the deep dark secrets of organization, that I would emerge from creative hibernation into a clear vista of uncluttered mind matter and just naturally know the path to take....silly girl!!! I fear that I am as unfocused as ever and will continue to wade through the waist deep questions of life ... waiting patiently for that 'tap tap tap' on my shoulder from an idea wanting to happen... but then, maybe this is how I work best. ..and that to have all the answers laid out before me all neat and tidy may tend to freak me out a little ...possibly I thrive best on the element of artistic surprise...
I can tell you that my batteries are charged , there is a full tank, the windows are cleaned and the seat is in an upright position ready to blast into a new creative year ...I just need to find that road map....

Perhaps you should go out to the tee pee and burn sage to clear out the evil spirit expectations that the artificial New Year's demands brings?

You were doing just fine before all that mess got dumped on your head.

Hi Karin...

Oh in truth I am doing just fine...I am just experiencing my yearly 'frazzle dazzle'!! Soon it will pass...actually ..it already is...started on something just about an hour ago. We saged up the tipi when we put it up and have our nightly fires...I think the spirits are very happy..

Happy new Year

I'm in that frazzle dazzle mode myself Jodi! I think what I'm going to do in the next few weeks is dig out my studio room (yet again) How many empty journals does one gal need?

Happy New Year to you and Richard and of course your mom!
