On Hold

There’s nothing like Christmas to slow me down but I really don’t want to stop. I hate that Christmas gets in the way of the normal routine I have and potentially disrupts my flow of creativity. I slip into petulant teenager mood, not because I dislike the people I spend Christmas with, but because the ideas in my head are not finding their outlet in the right way and at the right time. I hate too that I cannot spend time with the people I want because they are all away dealing with their own disruptions at this most wonderful time of the year.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a Christmas miser. I love giving presents, giving to charity, and helping others, but I do this throughout the year regardless. It doesn’t matter to me what month it is, if I see something that I know somebody needs in their life I give it.

All the disruption starts today and I’m trying not to let it get me down. I desperately want to finish this artwork but I can’t work on it again until at least Monday. Count the minutes, count the hours, count the days, and eventually it will all come right again. I know I have to be patient but I am an impatient person living in a frustrating world that I feel I don’t always know how to connect with. I have to find a coping strategy to help me through…
