Reflections on 2017


Just finished this weaving and included it as part of a grant application.

It's a reflection on 2017 and I'm not sure how much I want to get into it right now other than 2017 was a weird year.


After I finished this someone started a discussion in a group I'm in about the difference between resistance and burn out.


It's a solid discussion and made me realize I'm pretty burnt out right now. Between my studio situation being in a weird in between place for months now, Christmas season, and then finishing and redoing work that got messed up from how my studio move went down, I have not really taken a proper break.

So instead of doing stuff the other day, I stayed in bed with the cat and then took a bath in the middle of the day. I'm thinking there's more to learn from noticing the differences between resistance that can and should be pushed through and burnout that requires rest and restoration.
