The Signs Were There

Installation - Heffernan Lane, Melbourne

Things were starting to come unstuck on Sunday. I wasn't fully conscious of it at the time, but I think on some level I could feel the balance starting to tip.


The lists started taking over. There were at least 5 or 6 of them pushing and pulling me all over the place. Sleep was replaced by a busy brain with a good dose of tossing and turning, and the heat played havoc with everything.

When the meltdown came last night, it was a beauty.

This living of dreams is not for the faint hearted.

12 sleeps peeps. 12 sleeps.

  2. Oh crappity crap that's no good at all!
    Maybe some stitching on the couch would help? There's nothing worse than when you have ten thousand things all rattling around in your brain at the one time.

  4. I'm loving your signs ... they're gorgeous. Now you're getting an insight into the awesome power of a list ... and why they terrify me. I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back ... I'm so excited for you.

  7. Oh deep breaths, look after yourself, you did start off the year with quite the list of demands, spread them out, plenty of time for everything eventually. Love Posie

  8. Meltdown does not sound fun. Though the timing was probably good (?!?) because it was a stinky hot night, and there's enough days to get back to an even keel by the time it's time to go. Which will be awesome!

  10. I hear you ... I had that melt down on sunday afternoon when I thought of the enormity of things I had to get done this week.. result = there is one thing that I just won't be able to get done, fullstop. I think sometimes we have to give ourselves permission not to be crafty or not to push ourselves, we are all driven women!!

    To the wholeness.
    To the living of dreams.
