Creative Energy, and lack thereof

Torn paper sunflower
What does one do when one has no creative energy left?
The last few weeks we've had assorted issues with family illness, and bits of care taking and following up to make sure things are "alright"... because one just does those things for those one loves.
However it has left me tired and having trouble catching back up with myself.
I have all these ideas - things I want to create, and just can't make it happen. There is no energy left for creating, and I feel it's loss.
Another nights sleep; another day of catching back up and perhaps I'll get there.

In other news... Spring has arrived in my garden, evidenced by the lovely yellow dandelions with attending bees....

...and the lovely bleeding hearts, one of my springtime favorites.

Have a wonderful week!

Beautiful work, happy PPF. When I have no new ideas or energy, I just paint, colour, scribble, doodle, and make backgrounds, which I use later as a basis for journaling. Valerie

It's lovely and your garden pics are lovely as well... I watch inspiration on Pinterest or You Tube when my muse is absent.
Happy PPF!

gorgeous sunflower! I've had similar happening when I had too many other obligations to tend. When I feel like that, and tired I tend to do what Valerie does.

I too have been going back and forth out of town to help my Mom out. Shopping, etc. Your sunflower looks great Helen. Happy Spring to you, hope you are doing good. Take care.

My brain (right and left) shuts down when I am stressed and/or tired (why do they always seem to go together?) Collage is one of my favorite things to do and I just love your sunflower.

Your energy will return. Start with simple projects, doodling, sketching and writing -- things that just take a pen and paper. You'll get back into it when the time is right. Missing it is a good sign. Beautiful sunflower.

your energy will return and then you will have this huge outpouring of creativity... I love having all those ideas and thoughts stacked up in a great pile in my head... looking forward to seeing what happens when your spark comes home...xx
