My creative mojo has run away ...
... my mojo hasn't run away, of course. It is firmly here as this image demonstrates - taken on a walk around RHS Rosemoor this past weekend, with the focus on sunlight and shadow for my photos.
It would be fair to say I have not written in a while however I need to be kind and honest with myself and say that photography counts as creativity. Why I always forget this when I have my photos for sale on Getty iStock and Shutterstock is beyond me.
I was involved in a car accident a couple of months ago - sitting at my desk for the day job was hard enough and my physio banned me from working here at the weekends and evenings. Excuses still for not writing. I am forever writing in my head. It was so easy to capture those words when I was travelling so much. Maybe that is it. I do not write now because my world, after more than 2.5 years in pandemic world with absolutely no travel, I think is not interesting. No point writing about it because everyday is the same. And yet, it is not.
Each morning when I sit out in the garden watching and listening to the arrival of the day nothing is the same, and yet everything is. When I go out for my bimbles it is the same. It is always different even though the same.
One of the 5 Ways of Wellbeing is 'Taking Notice.' I do this every time I bimble (walk). I take photos everyday of things that catch my eye.
It is time for photographic pots for a while, methinks.
No more excuses.
My mojo is where it has always been.The same, but different. It's a photographic one...and I wrote about exactly this in August last year https://www.jacquelinelesueur.com/post/where-has-my-writing-muse-gone ...and yet here Iam. Sharing my photos everywhere but here.
I really do need to listen to myself sometimes!
