This has been a tough year for me, including 4 surgeries that will take me some time to recover from. The most recent was a knee replacement on October 14. My goal is that I will be able to travel again and walk everywhere like a good tourist by October of 2012.
During this time of surgery and rehabilitation, my muse appears to have fled. I spent a little time in the studio yesterday for the first time in almost a month, and I could not find a single spark of creativity. So, I think I will just visit my studio occasionally to see if anything stirs and give myself time to heal. Or, perhaps it is time to hit the art books. Usually when I get out my books and look at them, something strikes me and I rush off to the studio to try something out. Wish me luck in finding the spark that sets me off on another voyage of exploration. I miss it!
