There have been some sorrows in my life lately that have seemed to weigh me down. I tried to find solace in drawing and sketching and applying colour to a page. But it just didn't seem to work for me. My imagination seemed weighted down, and my sense of enjoyment seemed blunted. Sounds like the classic definition of depression and I suppose that the loss of loved ones does result in depression.
I have been doing these quick little inspirational journal cartoons, no pressure, just whatever inspirational saying gave me some comfort that day. This weekend, though, I have so many ideas in my mind. The sun seems to have thawed the numbness and started the creative juices flowing again. (My writing also seems a little disjointed - but I'm maybe out of practice with posting to this blog.)
