a tiny scream

it was fun to begin with.
when i had more time on my hands.
even though no-one is reading this (which i like) i feel such pressure to update.
just no time.

how do they all do this? AND appear to have other lives as well.

a few quick hand drawn patterns in ink, makes me calm.





i think i may have to abandon this blogging caper. just too many more important things to attend to.
right now.
so what am i still doing here?
it sucks me in.
got to go. no time.

Don't throw in the towel!

Give tiny screams from time to time (it helps) but keep going... sometimes writing stuff down, like here, inspires new things or helps solve creative problems...

Ok, that might be the ex-journalist or the newly-minted optimist in me. But come on :)

helen, i'm amazed you've responded. so sweet of you. i guess my problem is that I really love writing and i really love images... which is what i find so attractive about blogging, but i get a little freaked that it's so public. maybe i'm just a little too private and old-fashioned for this .. but i'm so very attracted to it as well. i really don't want my blog to turn into a therapy outlet.
i think it's just that i am so so busy at the moment, i would love to do more REAL blogging (whatever that might be), but just don't have the time and feel overwhelmed by all the other blogs out there run by equally busy people who still manage to keep a blog going.

anyway, so appreciate your comments. i really admire your optimism, something i need a lot more of. :)

I know... believe me...! It's why I don't write everything that pops into my head, and I never show my daughter's name or face (notice how she's never front-on?)

It's extra hard when you're busy – I still think it's worth it and I think you do it well!

Keep going...

I agree - don't throw in the towel! I don't blog my innermost thoughts because you're right, blogging shouldn't be an online therapy session. But I have two kids and a very art-deficient husband, and blogging is an awesome creative outlet. I love your writing style. And your fun patterns caught my eye. You should keep going with it!

I know the feeling, there are so many other things I should be doing right not, but don't go! I only just found you!
