How I remember learning that in science class in 7th grade.
Well, I've been living in one lately...and felt pretty abhorrent about myself. It's called the January blues, and I've been sucked into it yet again, yet another year. Sometimes I can push it off till February.
It may have to do with sunshine, but I think it's also post Winter-Solstice stress syndrome. PWSSS. That's why I'm sitting here talking rather than doing.
I'm all "do"-ed out. But to be fair, I'm keeping myself healthy...only doing a bit at a time. Today's bit is to show up at the studio. Don't we all have days like that?
One finger is complaining of some kind of cut, with a knuckle bump under it, so maybe it's swollen so I bump it more than normal, or something else, but it will keep me out of clay up to my elbows. I'm about to put a protective bandaid on it, and we have these lovely little finger tips of latex, kind of finger prophylactics, so we can still work in clay and keep our boo-boo's clean.
So I plan to wedge every piece of cold clay that's been sitting for a month on my shelf. And have something hot to drink!
What do you do to fight the winter doldrums?
