doing what we can...

Life is creative.... the rituals we keep, the people we allow into our soul vibration, and the art that rolls from our fingertips out into the world ebb and flow.   It ebbs and flows. You can't rush it or force it from your pores.  Even as deadlines approach, it ebbs and flows...

The past few weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster of motherhood ills. my muse has been rapping at my door with renewed vigor and I have been in frustration because I couldn't seem open the door and let her in. 

I  have been dealing with a thing called Mastitis. It's this thing that happens when you are breastfeeding. A milk duct gets clogged and then all hell breaks loose. What usually remedies itself with antibiotics and hot/cold compresses developed into this massive life consuming thing.  When I looked up mastitis on the mama websites, one description said it felt like being hit by a mack truck... in the breast.  I couldn't lean forward, basically... it was really that painful. 

Needless to say, while in pain, my art has not exactly been flowing.  And that has been beyond frustrating as I am in full swing for my next show, general family and home up-keep, new project development, booth and display conceptualization....

Sometimes we just keep our heads above the rapids, and that's enough...:)
