experiments in life, decorative felt, nuno, knit felt and mosaic
I think one of the hardest things I am learning about is how to deal with phases of inertia or illness and then to move towards recovery and regain energy. I’ve come to the conclusion this is a universal issue but some of us have more difficulty with inertia or illness countering energy and creativity than others. No-one can be creative, productive or positive the whole time. There’s nothing worse than the false positive for sapping energy. Sometimes we just need to be negative. Or ill. FULL STOP.
I really like the blogging community because in someone’s post I so often find a picture or a description or some enthusiasm for the delights of fibre and its capacities which triggers a sense of the universal and of shared human feeling. Other people’s blogs can help move me on.
And it is by being alert to the upswing that we can gain the capacity to be again well, productive and feel a renewed creative burst. Even after a period of illness.
So thank you fellow bloggers.
