Muse flees to warmer clime . . .



After all the Christmas rush to get my handmade gifts completed, I can’t seem to get going again.  I am stuck – and although I have lots of ideas, Idon’t know where to begin.  I’ve been working 50 plus hours a week at my mundane job, so that probably has something to do with it, and its cold upstairs where the studio is because even though I’ve been told that heat rises, it never seems to bother coming upstairs in this house, which is fine for sleeping, but not so fine for creating. And then I find myself all huddled up and trying not to shiver, and bundled up looking like an 18th century rag picker with all manner of clothing layered, tied and knotted so that the dog eyes me suspiciously and scurries out of the way to carefully watch my next move!  It doesn’t take much figuring out that the best thing to do is just jump into the bed, which is only across the hall, and warm.  So another night of creativity lost  to the winter night.  I noticed the moon last night was deep gold and just a silly eyeless grin….it isn’t funny!
