I've avoided my other blog as well--because the urge to make and create has also been absent. Of course, I'm reading. A day rarely passes that I don't read, but every so often the need to retreat into a less active, more internal state of mind just happens. Especially after the long holiday season from Thanksgiving to New Year's Celebrations when so much is going on.
What I have been doing, aside from the New Year urge to simplify and get rid of "stuff," is writing letters. Years ago, I participated in Mail Art, which is an entertaining pastime. This year has brought a renewed interest. Starting in December, Snail Mail to friends and family has kept me entertained. Especially letters to my grandchildren (who have, as yet, failed to return a letter). They love getting mail, but are less interested in actually writing letters in return. But that's OK, because as much as I love receiving letters (instead of just email), for the moment, my obsession is decorating envelopes and writing letters.

Now, maybe I should write some book reviews...or get back to cleaning out and purging the accumulated mess. GoodWill, here I come.
