Have to keep going… or I’ll stop.

Here I am “knee deep” in the summer break, (as they say), and I’m looking for the next activity. I really want a real break, I do. I really want to stop, smell the flowers, garden, clean up, all that good stuff (and slow down on things), but I’m already starting to think about the future.

I don’t think it can be helped. I think it is a plague of those who are perpetually creative, or those who strive to be perpetually creative.

Once an idea is out of the brain, the vacuum is something abhorrent. Something we NEED to correct. We either need to create something new, or learn something new or PLAN to learn something new.

This is where I am now – and I regularly find myself here. I never know exactly what to do with this phase, how to deal with it or how best to channel the “energy”, (if you can even call it that).

There are projects looming in the distance, for sure, but in the mean time, the idle brain starts to worry and plot and fuss and fret about what to work on in the mean time.

I don’t know what you do – but I enjoy travelling, cleaning (if the mood suits), drawing and rewatching favourite shows that have inspired me in the past.

What about you? What do you do when this strange feeling strikes?
