    Winter…

    This is my farewell to the winter…it has been a prickly one 😉

    …where I learned a lot of things I did not expect to learn. The most important learning was that even if you are self-employed and love your ‘work’ (passion), it does not make you invincible – or maybe it even makes you more vulnerable…

    It all began with a pretty nasty flu in December and with me thinking I could just ignore that as there were so many things I rather wanted an needed to do…bad idea…

    I won’t go into the details of the following downward spiral of no rest, weakening immune system, no exercise, not being able to get up or out, feeling bad about not getting things done, eating too much and the wrong things like snacks, pizza and whatever was easy and comforting, lots of displacement activities, depression, missing drive and inspiration, feeling even more inadequate, infection after infection…

    So here I am – 3 months later – trying to slowly establish a healthier balance between my creative soul, the right and left side of my brain 😉 and the body I have at best ignored for too many years. I definitely learned my lesson – the hard way!

    But enough of that, let’s focus on the coming spring by saying farewell to the winter with a few pictures and a little poem I wrote 🙂
