The End of Summer

It’s September, which means summer is over and autumn is knocking on the door! I know I haven’t updated my blog practically all summer, so I thought I’d do a summer recap, to explain why I wasn’t in the mood to write and what has been going on with me behind the scenes (that is, if you don’t follow me on twitter, where I often went on rants about this).

I’m not sure exactly how much sense this entry is going to make, given that it’s my first time trying to articulate the feelings I’ve had all summer in a proper blog post (it was really hard to do this at the time they were happening, and in a way, they still are happening).

Tea Reflection: Fear, Me & My Art

I’ve had a very important revelation recently, and I think it’s very worthwhile to write it down somewhere — to make a note of it for me, but also to inspire anyone else who might be reading. Plus, it’s a rainy Sunday night here — the perfect time to cosy up with a cup of tea and write a blog post. As the title of this tea reflection says, it’s about me and my relationship between my art and fear. Continue reading “Tea Reflection: Fear, Me & My Art”
