I've pulled away from something. I made sure to create a photo with a certain color for my blog challenges and would post it no matter how little I liked the image, in order to have something new to post.

To Be Still
For the first time in a long time I'm content with not creating. That's not to say I won't still be making things. I most certainly will.
