Getting out of my own way

I got deep inside my own head today and psyched myself out. I tried a few tricks to pick up my spirits, but kept putting myself into a faster and faster tailspin. When my only instruction is to go have fun for an hour and I can’t figure out why I’m not having any fun shouldn’t this be the best place to pass the time and learn something during a pandemic and is there something wrong with me why are you here. And so it went. I sat myself down on a rock overlooking Vestfjorden and gave up … in a way.

Lucky for me, I had chatted with Marie this morning on making more art for the Soldrevet website. In past moments of frustrated running (usually with an Arctic gale blowing in my face), I’ve managed to calm myself down by taking a photo to share with my parents. I’ve learned not to fight the wind, it’s time to learn how to get out of fights with my own brain. I thought I’d turn my adventure into a photo journey, and you readers get the secondary benefit. How far would my handful of raisins take me?

And the mushrooms are blooming, too, Kjerringøy, Norway.
