I’ve been the most absent of absentee bloggers over the last few weeks.
Times are tricky at the moment and alot of the spaces in my head and in my heart that were reserved for creativity and grand plans, have been filled with more pressing concerns. But I miss this little space on the web.
I got home from work the other day and felt like if I didn’t ‘do something creative’, I’d just explode. I made a blackboard out of a broken mirror, baked a cake and cut a bunch of roses from the garden. It felt a bit better 🙂
But what I really want to do is talk, write, share the thoughts that are filling my head and see what other people think. But I can’t. I can’t because I’ve started to be afraid of people’s reactions, people’s opinions, people’s idea of me….in a way that I never gave two hoots about before!
I wish I could shake it off and funnily enough, just writing this down, is making me feel lighter and brighter (juicer and riper!) already!
I know that as Dita von Teese so eloquently put it, “you can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” But that doesn’t make it any easier to be open, to be yourself, when yourself isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
