Anyway, I've been thinking about getting back to the blog for a while now and reading this series by Havi over at Fluent Self which has finally given me the motivation to just sit down and give it a try. Havi is pretty fantastic in a lot of ways, I'm sure you'll be hearing more about her around here.
There are a lot of things I want to cover, but I don't think I can really squeeze them all into one post so for now I'll just talk about what's most immediate in my mind. I've been trying to take a walk around the neighborhood everyday, to get outside and get moving, to soak up whatever sunshine I can, to get a change of scenery when I start to feel anxious and unfocused. It doesn't actually happen every day, sometimes I'm too tired, or it's raining, or there's just not enough time, but I go as often as I can. For a while I was trying to get back into drawing but I've slipped into my old ways and started to bring a camera along (usually a Canon G10, lighter and more convenient than the 40D). Here are a few images from today:
|Our neighbor's boat, in his backyard...Both of our yards get pretty soggy when it rains, how much to you think it will sink by springtime?|
|Most of the leaves are off the trees but there are still little bits of color if you look for them.|
