Okay, I’m Back

Cookies, cocoa and flowers
Hi, my name is Tricia and I used to blog. Do you remember that? Barely, you say? Yeah, me either 🙂
Anyway, here I am…back in my little bloggy space. Besides just being busy with life over the last few months, I’ve been feeling like I lost my creative mojo or some such thing. I’m not really sure why. I suppose that’s just how life is sometimes.

At any rate, I thought I’d take a few photos to try and get back into the swing of things. I always love flowers and food so that’s what I went with. Isn’t that floral ribbon pretty? My friend Tracey from French Larkspur sent it to me awhile back. Great girl, that Tracey 🙂
I look at those tulips and I keep hoping that wonderful weather is just over the horizon. This winter has already felt sooo long that I absolutely can’t wait for some warm, sunny days. I’m sure a lot of you are with me on this, right?!

Well, I suppose, that’s all for today. Total shocker, but I already took photos for another post…yay me!

Okay, see ya soon!

    Hi there! Good to see you. I think all bloggers go through a dry spell from time to time. Judging from these photos, I'd say you most certainly have NOT lost your mojo.

    I am more than happy to see your beautiful delicate photography again! I totally understand what you mean by losing your creative mojo as I often myself feel that way … and particularly at this very moment. What often encourages me to keep going are Ira Glass's wise words on creativity and "…It is normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work… It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” Look forward to see more of you and always grateful for your honest feedback on my work!

    As you know, I've reeled

    well, but I think it's necessary
    to be engaged in the world
    around us to bring anything
    that's really valuable to our
    bloggy spaces!

    As always, I want to walk
    right into your photos, sit
    down, drink the hot chocolate,
    nibble the cookie and smell
    the flowers!

    Yes–looooong winter. But sounds
    like spring is around the corner,
    next week (ha ha)!

Looks like back then you were about to restart? So sorry to see you haven;t been able to post here. Who knows why.
