Aside form the art, I need to have a life. (What?!? What’s up with that?) As much as I love the creative process, “all work and no play makes Tracy a dull girl”. So I have to make time to balance my life with other things I enjoy and find important yet seem to have neglected.
–> monitor my diet and my sleep habits; I love food and laying around in bed; but if my body doesn’t work right, neither do I.
–> keep other job to only what I need; make time for art and life. No Guilt!!
–> I’ve always loved music; dragged out the keyboard and restrung the guitar. Playing a little. Not progressing very quickly, but offers me a diversion
–> keep hiking; Mother Nature refuels me.
–> miss seeing and experiencing the pulse of the city, makes me feel part of a larger community; get back to doing that, too.
–> get back to reading. I love escaping into a good book, and it’s been way too long since I’ve read some novels (or, read anything besides art journals and the newspaper).
Time I did another self-portrait; somebody told me the red mug on the last one looked like a clown nose. <Doh!>
