Well life, the reality of life, has taken over my artistic freedom and of late I have none. It has been hectic. I have been facilitating a number of art therapy workshops (which is great) and the preparation has involved all of my free time. But...these workshops are easing with Christmas on the horizon and the summer holidays here in Aus when life begins a slower pace while universities and school are closed. Roads become quieter and as the weather heats up people stop inside with air-conditioners on to keep cool. And my creative space comes back to me.
