My ‘Pottery Mojo’ came back yesterday! It went missing due to fulltime work and associated travel… another visit to the school counsellor for my son etc. But is that really just an excuse for not pushing through the ‘week-end blues’….clouded by thoughts of…”I’m so tired…I’m so uninspired… just work, work, work”. Come on, am I the only one that has these thoughts? I haven’t felt like doing any pottery for such a long time now because of all these depressing thoughts, but I forced myself to at least touch some wet clay on my kitchen table yesterday. I’m so glad I did, because 5 minutes later I felt my old Pottery Mojo kick in. I was quite surprised actually. I didn’t expect it to kick in at all. The trick is in using one end of the kitchen table so that you can still look after the kids, put the washing on and cook some rice all at the same time. Forget the romantic idea of having a private art studio in the backyard where you can escape to another world. No more excuses! What do you do to break through your creative wasteland while juggling 100 things pulling you in different directions?
