My thanks goes out to the Helpdesk people for getting my CSS back in my journal and collections etc.
As for other news, snow is still here and green has not come, but soon it will. A lot of changes personally since the die off last Fall. I've been through almost my entire library of art paying close study, re-working pieces, thinking about my path, have not been producing much new work but feel the reflection time will benefit me in new work this spring. Also thinking more seriously about learning to paint better.
Physically I've got a completely new body since Autumn almost need a new wardrobe, likely in the best shape of my life I feel a new health and vitality which I'm sure will energize me in my study and work and so on. More mountain climbing and late night reading both, better balance between a strong mind and body now I think that is important.
Have had, and still have, an emotional season. The first time I've ben emotionally overwhelmed since I was a child and my father died, when I was helpless to change things and unprepared to deal with how I felt. Coming to terms with all that i've felt is difficult especially when it has far from over, I wake up every morning in love as I have for months, despite how unfruitful that love has turned out to be. Worse the distance now makes me worry i may have driven away a friend for good, which is the only thing that seriously hurts me.
So, winter has been a transitional and growing phase as all phases should be. With bloom of spring hopefully I'll have new art, even more strength, and some peace in my heart.
