My life has been pretty hectic in recent months. However, approximately two weeks ago I managed to get a major monkey off my back (so to speak). The release from the burden of study has been incredible. Juggling parenting, my honours degree studies, and volunteer work has been incredibly exhausting. Along the way I effectively lost my social life, which for an extremely sociable sociology student equates to a living hell! It also meant no time to engage in creative pursuits.

The last fortnight has been an incredible and healing time: a chance to read some novels, write and draw. To catch up with old friends. To have visitors for the first time in maybe one or two years. To travel to the beach (yes, it is a very cold winter here but I love the wild solitude of the wintry Victorian beaches where the wind blows in from the Antarctic). To enjoy some live music, something I have not done in years. To take the time out to watch the clouds roll by, to watch the ladybird (beetle!) crawling along a blade of grass when I hung out the laundry to dry today, and to refresh myself spiritually.

As a result, I hope to soon upload some new writings and drawings to redbubble. I want to thank the customers over the last few months who bought stickers, gift cards and t-shirts. Every sale is greatly appreciated.

I’m not sure what the months to come will hold. I look forward to graduating, soon. And after that, who knows what might happen?
