Sick in Bed

I thought I should just post a short update. As so often happens this year I have picked up a nasty flu type bug. This has kept me in bed for the past week or so. Normally, colds and that type of illness hardly bother me and I just carry on with my passions but this one caught me by surprise and I am having a hard time shaking it off. I am feeling a little better now so hopefully I will be back to normal soon!

Spring is finally here which gives me plenty of opportunities to get out with my camera and to try and get some creativity going. I always love this time of year as I find myself re-charged and full of ideas. I will post some pictures soon so you can all share in my artworks.

Christmas 2015

So, one of my favorite times of the year is just about to arrive. A time when family and friends get together and celebrate the birth of Jesus. This is a time when we can slow down at work, spend time together cooking and planning awesome meals and it is a (selfish, I know) time for me to just relax and create some new and interesting art.

As the years go by and I find myself getting older I realize that spending time with family is what really matters. When we are younger we tend to worry about the latest phones and clothes but as time goes on it is the smaller things that are important. I love spending time with my family at the beach or just lazying around indoors – whichever – but those special moments could be taken away from us at any moment.

As you can also see, from my cheeky video – I enjoy timeout to just relax and take in beauty. Most of us spend our lives under so much stress trying to do the right things for our loved ones. Sometimes you have to just take some time out and relax – it is so very important for the soul.

I won’t drone on too much about all of this – I guess you get the idea – but hopeful it will enable you to think twice about where you spend your free time.
