starting afresh




Today I felt a bit lost and confused going back to working life after 4 weeks of leisure time. It felt like being woken up when you're in deep sleep mode. I had written a long list of all the tasks I was to perform today, but I wasn't efficient enough.

Buying new papers at Cornérs for screen printing felt symbolic: a fresh start. (they had forgotten to change to the right date in the calendar on the wall). This week I will screen print the colouring page series (Snow white!) I sketched for in June.

And on Sunday there will be a new Interview in my Art as Business series - great artist and interesting answers.

I am experiencing the same feeling. Even though I love my job and feel immensely grateful for it, it feels so weird to be stuck inside. And there are so many things I would love to do instead of working !
Btw, I decided to take swedish classes in September. Maybe this could be my "new start" ?
