Inhaling Goodbye


Sometimes reaching the end of an adventure lets you realize that it really is more of a beginning than an ending, even though you have to close a door.

If I am honest with myself, my heart really wasn’t in this adventure from about February on.  

I had such grand plans when I started just over a year ago on my 44th birthday... of turning my life and maybe even the world upside down with a quest to add more creativity to my daily life.

I loved the format, the idea and the theme... but as I wrestled with my own personal issues after my father died, Nick’s mother fell ill and some other upheavals which shall remain private, I felt as if I was failing at so many things, especially this blog.

I do know that trying to practice Creativity daily kept me sane.

I discovered that sometimes you do need to plan instead of just boldly leaping into something and ending up with a bit of a belly flop.

I know that I will come back to this idea someday, perhaps after I have played a bit more.

For now, however, it is time to take a very deep breath and say goodbye to this blog.

THANK YOU for all the fun along the way!

  3. I've only just caught this, hence a late comment....

    I'm sorry to see the demise of your blog: not being artistic myself I still found it fascinating to watch your experiments, and you made me see the possibilities of creating something in my own life. I craft, I choreograph, I'm now trying to write and tell stories: you made me realise that being creative doesn't necessarily involve pencils and paints. Thank you, Jen, for opening my eyes, my mind and my imagination.
