Novembre & December 2020
Because I let time get away, I'm catching up!
Wrapping up 2020 and still quietly contemplating my intentions for 2021.
I stuck this together,
in a kind attempt to not overload your inbox,
though I've more to ponder,
more to say,
so please excuse the spurt of activity...
it will pan out and find a rhythm soon!
This is me keeping track of myself.
Seems I'm a mixed media human too!
with peculiar consistency,
slow and steady,
full of wonder and dreaminess,
overwhelmed with happy-sad emotions,
inspiration and desire,
wishing to do everything
contradictory and nonsensical,
I am me.
It got way too hot, too soon!
counting down school weeks
going through the motions
staying up late
Before I knew it, 2020 was gone!
December was a blur even though it felt slow.
I headed to the coast.
I caught a summer cold and got my first covid test.
Grey days and regular rain have been glorious.
I stretched myself out, continuing some pottery glazing and helping friends at their native plant nursery.
It is a crazy month for making as the days fill up with end of year stuff, so there will be catch up to do.
I tend to get quiet and reflective this time of year.
It certainly has been ripe with emotional upheavals!
Last months heat has evened out and the festive season was cooler and wetter than it has been for years, so refreshing.
Amotissé week thirty-nine
Check it twice!
Last minute Christmas list making!
Share your wish list with us...make it naughty & nice, wacky & wild, mindful, fun and creative.
Amotissé week thirty-eight
In a little end of year flourish, it’s time to turn the tables and get some fun interaction happening.
Nothing like an informal interview to get to know someone.
Your challenge...write a list of twenty questions for others to respond to...AND, answer as many of everyone else’s questions as you can!
Chances are we may ask lots of similar questions, so it should be easy and interesting discovering unusual questions.
Amotisse week thirty-seven
Silly season, unspoken obligations & haziness.
Tis the season to be jolly...or a little crazy...or lost...what does the silly season do for you? Make it as silly as you like!
Social, familial or self-inflicted, unspoken obligations hang around in the shadows, most of the time we don't even think about them and other times they feel like they're coming at us from every direction!
Do they actually exist or do we create them?
Can you list them, identify them for what they are?
Can you make a little light fun of them?
When something throws you out of whack and things are blurry around the edges…what do you do?
Sometimes blurry edges and haziness are comfy...where do you find your blurry haziness?
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.
