So much time has passed since I was last here.
Perhaps you require or expect an explanation.
The month of March is renowned as a Slack Blogging month and I have been talking to people in attempt to find the reason.
Chatting with writers, sculptors, artists and songwriters I discovered that their creativity also dried up at this time of year. Their solutions to this problem have been inspired and inspirational.
Some have taken breaks to ‘recharge’, others to pursue things that the y are unable to do when work gets in the way. The most succesful, most driven individuals have taken the time to sell themselves and wipe the slate clean for the next year’s worth of creativity.
My artist friends use this time of year to display and sell their work, organising exhibitions and gallery residencies
My songwriting friends (names witheld) either organise live performances or promote their latest release…anything that gives them a break from the daily drudge of creativity. Sometimes I wonder if they’d rather be working 9-5 in an office.
So many people I meet seem to be malcontent. Is it a product of modern living? If so then Modern Life Is Rubbish. Is it just the natural state of the human condition? I think we can rise above it, can’t we?
NB this may seem to be a very untypical post for me but how many album titles can you spot in the above post?
