It's good to be back to work. The holiday season has come and gone. Managing to pick up from the last written line, or brush of color can be a bit challenging. Having been here before, I've learned, it's best to go easy in the new year, and not confuse the lack of momentum for the lack of motivation. It's the creative 'treadmill effect. One must clear the mind, and the dessert table. Let the ideas gel. Sort of like that green Jell-O mold with red cherries. Yeah, like that.
