After a long period of inactivity and wondering whether I'll ever get anything started again, today I made some mail art. I feel good. And that's saying something!
The last year has been pretty traumatic; a period of time when lots of things happened and forced dramatic changes to me and my family, all in fairly close succession, without any time for reflection or adjustment or acceptance. Some of these things created a chain reaction too, where several smaller issues escalated and have eventually made a huge difference to my life. All this has taken its toll upon my health and had me spend some long months adrift on a 'dark ocean.'
I have been slowly drifting towards the shores though, and although I have found it very difficult to maintain my motivation and enthusiasm, I have begun to feel some excitement about the creative process again.
During this time, I have received a number of what I can now call 'postal medicine' that have managed to make me smile and remind me that mail art can have a really positive effect - not just for the receiver, but also for the sender too.
I will be posting next week for the first time this year. It feels good to be back.
