Inspiration- Janet Jones and sleep cycles





Janet Jones, an artist who I found this evening via The Collage Museum, is so absolutely inspiring that I have lost all the tiredness in my mind and am desperate to get into the studio- but my body protests, and I must try to switch of my mind for sleep. At 4:30am, it is half hour past my bedtime. Yes, only half an hour.

I have an abnormal Circadian rhythm, basically that means I don't do 9 to 5 like everyone else. My hours are roughly 1pm till 4am. It's something that has bothered me in years passed, especially in those times when I needed to be awake with the rest of the world. But I am coming to terms with it now, and am thankful that as an artist working from home, I can have any hours I want! Hopefully I will one day re-train myself, I wish sometimes I were the kind of person who could get up at dawn. it's such a perfect part of the day, so peaceful and clean.

Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful finds!
And your Etsy shop...well, it is just magical!!
If this is what comes from being awake until 4am, I wouldn't change a thing :)
