So for the past 4-6 weeks I have felt like I am climbing Mount Everest. Some things in life have just taken their toll and I have landed flat on my back. I hate dealing with the "D" word. Its something I have even avoided talking about until the last few days. Reality has hit. I suffer from the D word. sigh. It runs in my family so its pretty inevitable anyway. I have been in denial about it for some time. But its time to face it. I am facing this head on and I am going to fight it to the death. Each day may be small victories, but I will fight this. The only thing I really REALLY miss right now is my artistic muse. She has gone, and has been replaced by a fog. I sit and have loads of great ideas. Once I stand in front of paper or canvas, it goes blank. Its the WORST! But I still "show up", draw some stuff in my Moleskine, and collect art supplies, so when the "sun" returns I will be ready to go. I try to rejoice in each day's small victories. I look back at my day and count all the things I accomplished (even though they aren't really art related at all). As if its not lonely enough with the "D" word, I tend to isolate myself. And it sucks not having any family nearby. So I do this...........alone.
