Taking a Break: Sabbatical #3

Just a quick note to let you know that I am on another Sabbatical this week, so there will be no blog posts till next Monday.

Due to a few engagements that were locked in before I decided to do the sabbatical thing, I have been unable to stick to the 7-week cycle. It has ending up been a solid 8 weeks of work (including moving home!) and in a word I’m exhausted.

Despite all the work I have piled up, it is good to force myself to have a break, recharge my batteries and create some space to think. It’s not a complete break from work (ie. vacation) rather it is a chance to catch up on other things and think through what I plan to achieve in my next 6-week block.

Have a great week!


PS. Despite the big #oneweek100people2017 being over, I still managed to sketch 12 people during Day 1 of my sabbatical. Gotta keep going and make it a regular habit.

PPS. I am pretty excited also because yesterday I visited a new cafe with more people, better coffee, and nice saucers!

    Am so happy you found a cafe with better saucers. I was really tired of the black cups and glasses! Ha!

    Dear Liz, I have enjoyed taking one of your courses, and love the blog. But, at 76, I have discovered the bliss of time to myself. Your sabbaticals are a very sensible, healthy idea, as long as you enjoy them guilt-free!. We will all benefit when you bounce back, refreshed, With best wishes from snowy Brooklyn in New York, Beverly
