Overdosing, mistakes and esoteric head wear.
What do you always do too much of?
There are probably a few things that come to mind.
For me it is books.
I am going camping for a few days and I will no doubt take more books than I can read, just as I borrow bags of books from the library, to add to the piles of books I already have at home!
Books are exciting and comforting.
Just having them there is pure pleasure, so if I have to overdose on something, let it be books! And making stuff, wandering, op shopping, writing, dreaming...the list goes on!
i am a mistake
my missed takings
are the best of me
what do you do, how do you see your mistakes?
I have discovered that my best work and discoveries come when I err...error from err...to wander, often aimlessly and without intention...perchance to dream?

You may have noticed my recent post inviting you to participate in a hat making challenge...ESOTERIC may seem like a tricky theme, however, as with any challenge, it's all in the interpretation. That is what I love about creative work shopping, so much magic and inspiration evolves from our interpretations!
So please don't get caught up in trickiness, go with the first idea that pops in your head.
Describe an esoteric hat or headpiece, and then because I know you have creative bones, make it! I will be calling out to my witchy poetess energy and who better than the ancient Greek poetess Sappho to guide us!
Share as many inspiration posts as you like. I can’t wait to see what you imagine!

Abstruse obscure arcane recherché rarefied recondite abstract difficult hard puzzling perplexing
Enigmatic inscrutable cryptic Delphic complex complicated involved over/above one's head
Incomprehensible opaque unfathomable impenetrable mysterious occult little known hidden
Secret private mystic magical cabbalistic involuted
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
