A New Start


My life seems to consist of lots of little new starts, times whem I feel inspired again. This one's quite a biggy though. I haven't blogged or sketched or painted for at least two months - I kept saying to myself 'I'll do it when we move to the boat'. Lots of things have been happening, sad things like the loss of my lovely Chester dog, who died four weeks ago aged 14, and having to take the little rabbit Binky to a rescue centre, big things like emptying my house completely, decluttering to the max, putting stuff in storage and fitting all the necessary stuff on the boat. Now we have handed the keys to the house over - we have no mooring - we are rootless for the first time - total water-gypsies! This is the start of our new life as continuous cruisers, and hopefully the start of a lot more sketching! The one above was of the view from our boat moored at Weybridge visitor moorings.

I know just what you mean about so many little new starts. I have so many unfinished projects! But the rest of life gets in the way doesn't it? Like the death of your dog Chester. How sad for you. I'm please you're starting again with your drawing posts. Thank you. That's encouraging me to try again with a quick daily sketch. I won't be blogging them though - not yet anyway.

Thank you Seeker - I hope you get on well with your sketches and start blogging them soon!

I am so glad you're back, but so sorry to hear about your dog. I have three labs, so I understand. I would be beyond devastated, so what the age.
