What Comes First
The blog has been on vacation while I recovered from a cold and managed the process of pulling two small group art exhibits together (while trying to finish my artwork for both those exhibits and a couple of other upcoming art events). Feeling a bit overwhelmed by all this, I let myself get sleep-deprived, and the next unfriendly virus that came along found me an inviting target.
The lesson here is: No matter how tight my schedule, I have to find time to take care of myself. That should be my first priority. Get enough rest, eat right, get some exercise and an occasional massage. There's no substitute for these essentials, and they ARE essentials, not just "nice-to-have" options. Lesson learned, for now. And I'll probably have to nudge myself again - and again. It's an easy lesson to forget when you're doing what you love.
Meanwhile the shows must go on! See the next blog entry for details about these exciting exhibits.
Happy creating -
