Lots of things percolating in my mind. 2 months (!) of convalescence have really taken their toll on me, and now… I’m trying to balance the need to Do Things with the need to take care of myself, and not do too much before I’m ready.

In other words, don’t ever get a pulmonary embolism, everyone. It stinks.

On my mind:

I had 2 art submissions out – submitted before I became ill. Since my illness, I’ve gotten a negative answer on one (with great feedback) and no answer on the other, which essentially means “no” until I’ve heard otherwise. So I’m looking at what to do next with my art.

I was really looking forward to this school year, because I will have some uninterrupted work time during the day. Unfortunately, until I am more recovered than I am, I have to use that time to rest up rather than work. I find that if I DON’T rest during that time, I don’t have the stamina to do all the other things that need doing when the kids are home. But I am improving, so that won’t be the case for much longer…!

So now I am left deciding what I actually want to do with my art. What sounds fun? What will feel like play rather than work? What do I really want to say with it, and how do I want it to make me feel?

What do YOU want to see?
