The one where Carrie can't get off the couch to do anything.

I love the show "Friends".  I could probably watch repeats every day of my life and still laugh.  I especially like the descriptions in the guide, because they always start out with "The one where...."  I love this, because when I am talking to someone, explaining some funny episode, the way I say it is.."You know, the one where............" So I love that the writers of that show do the same thing.
Ok, I don't know where all that came from, except to say this: This is the episode of MY LIFE where I can't get off the couch to do anything.  Save for a few journal pages here and there and an article I wrote, I have literally done nothing artistic.
I have read some good books, went on a couple mini vacations (or long weekends, if you will) and hung out with friends, but nothing much more than that, in the art department.
I need motivation people!!
I have some really cool things I am involved in, with some amazing artists, and I am excited about them.  So why then, can I not get moving?
Maybe it's the ridiculous heat.  Maybe it's my ridulous laziness.   (I am going to put my money on the latter).  Anyway, here are a couple journal pages I did last week, talking about the cool weekend with my family in Havasu. I am going to get busy on more. Or maybe just a little nap first.

Sometimes you just need to do nothing--like everything in nature--little seeds underground that bloom into flowers; trees that go dormant in the winter. Reading, watching Friends, just hanging out--it's good sometimes. Grab yourself some great magazines and art books to thumb through while you are reclining--or but your sketchbook with a couple of colored pencils next to the couch to scribble in occasionally. Pretty soon your muse will be rested up and bored with friends and haul you off to your studio. In the meantime, enjoy!!

I agree, sometimes doing nothing is your body's way of saying it needs a time out. Just go with it and you'll come out of the other side raring to go.
