Time - my latest search for ways in which I can be creative. My current paid work requiring 10 to 11 hours per day, Monday to Friday, and usually parts of Saturday and/or Sunday (not today though), I have sadly reflected on earlier times when I could sit down for at least an hour or two of drawing during the week. Knowing that without creativity in my life, I go a "little" nuts, I have decided to look at it a bit differently and determine what in this day of mine is requiring creativity? - how to hold a sandwich while continuing to work at the computer? -sharpening four pencils at one time to reduce the time away from my calculations? ...No, not so much.
I do believe, however, that there is an art to making decisions, an art to how you impart information to people, an art to how you request assistance, and an art to how you choreograph your day , the people in your life, and how you move through it all. There can be an effort for grace and dignity which, at times, does not come naturally.
Communication and the way of day to day life can be art if you choose to make it so. I am choosing to try. I have always spouted that art is alive and vital - now it's my chance to live my words.
On the lighter side, I'm hoping to have a couple of lovely images to share here later today so stay posted!
