That sinking feeling you get when nothing is getting done and all you want to do is sleep. This has been my everyday for the past two months. Every time I start to set up my camera or work on my apartment I start feeling overwhelmed and just stop. I've been living in my new place for two months and still feel like a stranger there. It's not my home and I'm just visiting. I can't seem to shake this strange feeling. My boyfriend has been decorating and putting all of my things in place to make it feel more homey, but something is still off. Don't get me wrong, it's a great little house with lots of room and lovely old world features, but something isn't quite right yet.
I'm starting to feel the pressure as my next show approaches and I haven't completed any new pieces.
How do you adjust to changes? How do I make myself feel less like a visitor here?
I've been neglecting my blog lately due to home renovation stuff, but I wanted to let you know that I will be having a show in December if anyone in the OKC area wants to come. I'll have more details later. Also, I finally have internet at my house so I can get back to posting pictures again.
I finally feel like I've got most of the unpacking done in my new place. Now to start decorating and painting.
I also went to a different doctor to see if they could figure out what's wrong with me. I got a new prescription that hopefully will work. The down side is that the medicine makes me a little loopy. Hopefully I'll get back into taking pictures soon. Jeff and I are planning on working on some stuff together which I'm really looking forward to.
Here's a lovely picture of the strange skin condition I've developed.
I just wanted post a little update to tell you why I haven't added any new photos lately. I've been taking a little time off to collect my thoughts and put some ideas together, which has stretch passed a little time to a lot longer than I had hoped. In the midst of this hiatus, I've found out that I'm moving again. This move will hopefully be for the better. My new place is more spacious, doesn't have the ugly carpet that my current place has and is close to work. In the next few weeks I'll be boxing up and purging a lot of stuff. I'm very excited for the change and hope that it inspires me to take some more pictures.
In the meantime, I'm working on a few little projects here and there just to keep my stress level down. I finished my first dream catcher the other night and am currently in the midst of a crochet project (disaster?).
I hope to more new stuff to write about that's a little more interesting than this.
I know I haven't posted a lot lately, but I really wanted to share the lovely music of lykanthea with you guys. Lykanthea is Lakshmi Ramgopal, a Chicago based solo musician. Her music is beautifully haunting and if I weren't writing this on my phone I would have embedded a sample for you to listen to. You can check out her music at http://lykanthea.bandcamp.com
I recently ordered another one of her cassette tapes which comes with a lovely hand made ring.
She's definitely worth checking out.
I should be back next week with some new photos. I've taken a little break to work on sorting and cleaning out closets and to work on a few craft projects.
