Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Book Origami is BACK!

I have been thanking God in my prayers so much lately that my brain has come back.

I have seriously missed it. Depression is like death inside. I envy those people who can pour out their grief into art and doing. Me, I barely exist... Bleh.

Anyway, I took pictures of all my books which are finished. It was weird to go through the house and find all the half-folded books I've squirreled away on random shelves and dresser tops. My hubsand is very patient.

Here are a couple of pictures of what I've put in the shop. Just to prove I'm living again.

So good to know that you have/are coming out the other side. Sometimes it is a slow way through.Don't forget to thank yourself for finding/recognizing your way.

These books are gorgeous.Now that we can see them wholy , their features really show as quite intricate.

it's really fun and i like this way of recycling old or bad books (my "bookworm"-book was a book my mom AND me read wen we were about 10 years old. so it's over 30 years :DD)
