The year of doing as little as possible...
I've begun to think of 2012 as "the year of doing as little as possible," AKA a sabbatical of sorts. A vacation from my permanent vacation.
Basically this means that I'm not pushing myself to do any more creative work than what wants to happen of its own accord. Yes, it still requires gumption on my part. But I'm striving to not feel as though I must make art just because all my artist friends are doing so or because I created a lot of stuff in the past.
This is harder for me to do than it sounds. Which I think is what this sabbatical thing is all about for me ~ learning to not feel guilty for not producing a bunch of stuff, and for not feeling motivated or inspired.
I just don't. That's what's so.
