It would appear that my lazy arsed cleaning fairies snuck in one night
while I was asleep and kidnapped my creative mojo
I suspect they have it out on the town somewhere doing who knows what
to who knows whom, and basically causing no end of trouble
bloody fairies.... nothing but trouble from day one
Of course it could be that the fairies are completely innocent
And there are other reasons for my mojo taking an unscheduled breather
But it is more fun to continue to wage war
on those unreliable sods that never turn up to do the cleaning
I do like to have a good reason for my mojo deserting me so that I don't get too introspective and start thinking it may be me... I relish my status as a shallow pond and have no intention of getting into deep and meaningfuls of any sort
After all it couldn't be that Phantom Steve has started uni and that has required a couple of weeks of changing schedules and timetables, plus having her coming and going is doing the dogs head in...poor thing doesn't know what is going on ...
Plus I have started radiation and am two weeks in with four to go, and while it is in no way anywhere near as debilitating as chemo, it is kinda annoying
I am managing to nail the landings off the machine bed thingy every day though there have been some close calls and it is only a matter of time before it all goes horribly wrong
Of course while lying there last night being zapped I did consider that perhaps all that study I did for my masters majoring in creativity theory may have been wrong and rather than my brain governing my creative decision making processes perhaps my creativity is in fact centred in my armpit, or poor lefty, and the zapping by the radiation was frying my creativity
A bit of a slightly alarming thing to consider I know, but it made perfect sense at the time
This every week day thing for treatment is messing with our already messy schedules which reside in our messy house... Which is messy because the bloody fairies did a bunk months ago... See it all comes back to them...
So what have I done while my muse is off partying ..... I tried to kick start it by not thinking too much about images or anything like that and just get something onto paper
So this week is all about repeated images... I used these four teacups for one of the weeks of the Documented Life Project journal and liked them so I decided to use them again ... and again... and put them on a notebook ... and a card ... and if the dog had of sat still long enough they would have appeared on him also
But it has done its job and messy life aside I am feeling the ideas coming thick and fast again
and I am itching to get in and draw up some new things and maybe finish off some of the stack of work that has taken up permanent residence on my desk
happy painting everyone and huge happy birthday to Paint Party Friday
It is simply the best place for creative types to get together online...
Thanks to Eva and Kristin for organising it every week xx
