Enjoying checking out all the little artsy shops here. Down side is that now I feel like a no-talent hack. Nothing I make would get into a shop like one of these. I should go back to jewelry. Jewelry just feels very marginal to me now, though. Jewelry has always been everywhere, too ubiquitous, but it feels that way to me more than ever now. Jewelry. Who needs it? I should have been a potter.

What I should do to resolve all this mess is work and work and work until I get it straight. Have some more failures, improve my skills. But I can't because children. So I go through this pointless cycle of brainstorm, excitement, crash. I have a very minor streak of bipolarity (I am bipolar in the same way I am Aspie. There are tendencies but that's all) that manifests itself in my creative cycle. And when I can't work to make progress, it's all that and none of the leveling up. And I seem to just go through the cycling faster and faster these days.
