I thought that, rather than popping in a post which will move down the line, I’d explain how I intend to organise the regularity of my posts.
Simple answer: I don’t.
And the reason is because I have fibromyalgia, spinal damage and pain in my hips and knees so I never know what the state of my health is going to be from day to day.
So I post as and when I’m able. I am hoping to be able to post every other day, and work on my digital art on the intervening days. But I’m flexible and I hope you can bear with this flexibility.
I’m not complaining, by the way. I simply wanted to explain why this blog may look a bit erratic when, in fact, there are hidden health reasons for the random way my posts turn up.
All of the above health challenges are, in fact, a blessing as they have shown me the way to slow down, live life one day at a time, and to really value those times when my head is clear, I feel physically on top of the world, and I can create until the cows come home.
Except it doesn’t quite work out that way!
As I embarked on this book I was brought face to face with the very annoying fact that, if I get unbalanced and try to speed up, I fall flat on my face. I have learned that I need to do half of what I’d like to do when I’m physically chipper, and then enjoy the rest of the free time fibromyalgia gifts me with to rest, tune in to the world, enjoy the environment and slow right down.
So that is why my posts tend to be a bit erratic and random. I hope, now you’ve read the explanation, you’ll bear with me in my dances with the slow life and the ups and downs of my daily life.
