I've updated my OS, which allowed me to update my browser. Ergo, I can once again successfully navigate dA.
However, I'm still not drawing. I'm blocked and have many priorities that require my attention, time and energies. This facet of my life remains mothballed.
But I have been doing a great deal of soul-searching to detect the flavor of my disillusionment. I realize that, for decades, I've been forcing myself to make art to meet others' expectations, honoring how "they" would like to see me use my abilities. I think I'm finally reconnecting to my roots. As I get more accustomed to focusing on what I feel like doing, I'm feeling more optimistic about my chances.
And when time permits, I'll start over and see where the new path leads me.
