Shifting gears

One of the most difficult and challenging things for me to do is switching gears (and I find I must do it continually).  By switching gears I mean finding time in my daily life to work on drawings and to sketch and stay loose and inspired.  I have a day job that keeps me away from home almost 50 hours a week and sometimes seems like its about the farthest from the art world as you could get!  That's not a bad thing and I'm very thankful for it but I find that I must force myself to muster the energy to get into the studio (which is a fancy word for small room in the basement ) a few times a week.  I don't rely on art for making a living but I do envy professional artists who can keep their mind zoned in and inspired constantly.  Just my .02!  :)
