I have reached a point where I feel out of step. This malaise was emphasised by some irritating hassle in the return of a quilt from the USA, and has precipitated an inclination to throw up my hands in withdrawal.
I certainly do not want to stop creating work - I couldn't anyway without giving up on living. But I need to take a long look at what I'm doing, and why.
I shall give myself the year - I work so slowly in any case, I have a backlog of ongoing stuff which I do not want to abandon. (I have expanded a little more in my work blog - but not much, as I'm just at the beginning of my thoughts.)
It is not a negative situation, however: one of my favourite activities is thinking!
