San Francisco bound

Flower Card by Roberta Warshaw

I am not sure what is going on but ever since returning from vacation I am so uninspired! Usually when I come home from being away my brain is on fast forward with new ideas. Not this time! I did manage to finish a couple of cards that I had begun before I left but haven’t started anything new yet.

In a couple of weeks I will be going out to San Francisco to visit my Aunt Beryl (my mother's sister). Hopefully I will come home refreshed and ready to work again.

I am really looking forward to my trip. It is the first time I will be going on vacation solo if you can believe that at my age! But I have always traveled with husbands, children etc. Never alone. I am pretty sure I will like it. It is funny because my aunt, who is in her eighties travels all over the world. Solo. She has been to every continent at least twice and some more than that. I really admire her for her vast travel energy. She even went to Iran last fall. No one in the family could understand why but she is just such a curious person and it was one of the only places she hadn’t been yet. Not only does she travel all over the world but she also works part time as a docent at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

She is a feisty lady and I adore her. This is her. Isn't she adorable?

I think Auntie Beryl's wardrobe (love that top she has on) and personality will give you lots of inspiration! She sounds like the ideal Auntie! Enjoy :)

OMG Roberta! You are sure to come back from Auntie Beryl's inspired!
Last year I took a 6 month on line course with Jean Houston. One of the things she teaches is that this 'uninspired' moment you are having is quite normal. It's an incubation period of sorts. When your next burst of creativity is ready to appear, you will not be able to hold it back. Be gentle with yourself. Have fun! And no worries about solo travel. I do it too. Not quite like Beryl....she's in a league of her own.
