The strangeness of the mind

What does this say of my mixed-up state?

I find it impossible to believe that I created this page in my Artist Journal notebook only a week ago, and how when I came to colour the tiny sketches last night, I could not remember what I had been planning to do or why. I know it was a lovely leap forward from after the Open Studio event in our caravan (back in June), but nothing really made sense. And in a way it still doesn't, because I seem to have been brain-dead to other than work, and have become increasingly frustrated that work consumes all available time and I feel as if I will never escape. I haven't posted my 'Creative Morning Pages' since I can't remember when, and I even reached the point where I couldn't write them. So much for good intentions! And why bother to set down all the ideas that flow into my head if, when I look at my notes, I have absolutely no recollection of what I had planned. All too convoluted. So I made a decision, and have acted upon it, and that is a post for my more personal 'Wild Somerset Child' blog.

A glass of red wine

Wineglass of red wine
with watch at side (to remind
me that work is pending)
Lest you should think I have abandoned Creative Morning Pages and my page-a-day, I haven't. I've been covering a different as-I-wake topic each day, have been sketching in odd moments, taking photos and moving forward with one project and another, and a leap into something else as well. But overall, this takes a back seat at the moment; I just have not been able to make the time to scan the 'cmp' nor assemble and manipulate the accompanying photos. Still working flat out and taking far more time than I would usually do over breakfast, coffee, lunch and tea so that R. rests himself. Very necessary, but frustrating as I like to work in 3 hr uninterrupted stretches, So this last weeks 'cmp' will be scanned and will appear. Eventually.
