No, something bad. Not something I can talk about in a public forum, because it involves a family member, but basically I'm completely out of time for things like drawing and creating just about anything.
I haven't done anything like drawing for months now, not even my practice work to keep my eye in, I'm hopelessly out of form. Not to mention all my energy is just being drained to the point of insomnia, health problems and the desire to just run away and never come back. As you can imagine, that wouldn't help anything, so I'm kind of stuck.
If I can come back from this, then you'll find me here again, drawing up a storm thanks to all the bottled-up creativity I'm suppressing, but I can't allow myself to waste time on me when there's so much that needs to be done for someone else.
It's not all bad news though, I'm actually going to be getting some time for just me, something to look forward to is always worth the time it takes to get there. In short; I've booked a different sort of holiday for next February than I would usually book. Instead of going to Africa to visit relatives, or to somewhere else in the world where I could do the same, I'm going to chase the Aurora Borealis in the north of Sweden (a place called Abisko) for five days. End of February I'll be out there ticking things off my proverbial Bucket List, like 'standing on ice that can support my weight without cracking' (I'm going ice fishing), and 'take a walk in snow deep enough to be inconvenient' (living in England I've never had snow deep enough to actually need me to change shoes, so out there I'll be going snow-shoe trekking) and finally... [drum roll please] staying a night in the Ice Hotel!
So... a mixed bag of things. Right now I'm terrible and may not be able to do anything or be anywhere but IRL helping out, but I have something awesome to look forward to, and things can always get better.
Catch you around!
