I've decided that it's time.
Gah! I've got so much I want to say and write and post here. I have countless half written bits and pieces back here and planned mini-series bouncing around in my head.
But you might have to wait a while for those.
Because I've decided that it's time.
Because I've realised that less is more.
Less things to do means I can be experiencing more joy and more productivity in the things that I do choose to do.
I'm an artist.
And I do really want to invest time in building my art portfolio and exhibiting career.
And that means I need to stop making excuses and throw myself more fully into my art career (around family life, of course). That means more time in the studio. More time invested in my art blog (yes, I have one of those. It's dreadfully neglected), more time networking with artists and galleries, and more time promoting using the internet and social media.
I'm always busting with ideas but have always said "I'm too busy", or, "not while the kids are little". But, imagine if I even just took the chunks of time I spend here at jeremiah's niece and funneled that into art. That would at least be a start. (It's a bit-by-bit and step-by-step kind of career, this art thing.)
This is not a close post. But it's a "there'll be less of me here now" kind of post. Posts will be less...consistent.
Jeremiah's niece will still exist. And there will be the odd post now and then. I tend to roll in seasons and there will probably be little sprint bursts every now and then when I write like a mad woman (because things well up in me sometimes and I just have to get them out) ....interspersed with drought.
240 posts in the last 12 months is kind of epic. (Thanks for gracious support from those of you who have been joining me here). But it's gonna be a bit slower around here. For now.
