Friends, tomorrow I’m embarking on a trip! By myself! I’ll be attending Socality Camp in the Canadian Rockies and I can’t tell you how stoked I am about this.
I first learned of this over the summer, and it seemed pretty affordable (at least compared to other camp-for-creatives events I’ve encountered in the past) and Alan and I talked it out and decided I could go for it. I was so scared. Scared of leaving my baby for 6 days, scared of him not being well fed or not sleeping and creating chaos and stress for Alan. Scared of being all by myself in a sea of strangers! Scared of having to continuously pump milk so my supply doesn’t run out. It had also been so long since I did anything independently, and that was scary too.
But, I thought, if it scares me, I should do it. If I can do it, I should do it. I’ve been away from other creative adults for so long, and becoming a mother, while amazing and life-changing, meant that I lost part of myself along the way, and this is an opportunity to get some of that back, maybe an even better part.
So that’s where I’ll be! And I hope to return refreshed and positively abuzz with creative energy and motivation to do and make and maybe I can dust off the ol’ blog for fall.
