A Rut of Sorts

I’m in a rut. I think it’s because I get stuck in front of the computer and just can’t walk away. I need to play with some paint, some projects, to just FORCE myself to do it.

I need for my hands to look like those above. I need to paint, to mess, to move my fingers through a luscious rainbow of paints on a journal page. To take a pen and DOODLE. To just CREATE.

The computer, the AZ heat, the stuffiness of the AC, the buzzing bugs outside my window, they are all bogging me down. Sometimes we just need to PUSH ourselves to create, to stop making excuses, to stop overthinking it. Today’s the day.
