Week 35 in my yearlong sketchbook practice. I accidentally took a 4 week break from my sketchbook practice. I wish I hadn’t. In a week that was impossibly busy it seemed like the sensible thing to do. I wish I had found a way to squeeze it in but it felt like the only option. Once the wheels came off I slippery sloped into avoidance and stuckness. At the same time I missed it – more and more – that little part of my day and all the good things it brings me even when I don’t feel like doing it. I got back on track last week. Lesson learned I hope, about the perils of letting go of a discipline that is working for me.
