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…

Quiet Times

Birthdays for a five-year old boy. Two weekends in a row with a 14-year old boy who nearly burned my house down because he kept trying to turn off the fire alarm instead of putting out the fire in the oven. Mothers-in-law going into the hospital and nearly dying. Work being difficult. Life being lively.

My mind will be back on art soon. It just needs some time to rest...

I am thinking that you've got a way to find a way to keep your thinking positive, while still paying attention to what might not be such great news.

Best wishes to you as this new year develops.

On the bright side, if my house burns down, I don't have to clean it anymore!!! :)
