The reality behind the glorious creations is my spread out chaos!
As previously mentioned, I have lots going on at once and am only too aware of the days flashing by!
Working in the studio during the day is great, but with the cool weather, I usually migrate to my cosy loungeroom in the evenings. Self discipline and time management are continually challenging. I dont like rushing. I like to savour the moment and enjoy the process. I am quite certain that indulging regularly in the things I love doing keeps me happy, healthy, sane, positive and full of gratitude.
There is so much inspiration out there on creative living, work ethics and processes; Pip Lincoln's Crafting for the Soul or The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron to name a couple. I often wonder how other creatives do what they do. Apart from the obvious elements, the finished product is no real indication of what happened to achieve it. All those polished surfaces rarely reveal the rough edges.
With time and experience, I have discovered that everything is interesting.
There is always more than what we can see and hear.
Be curious, ask questions, look deeper and think a little harder. You never know, life may reveal some of its mysteries for you.
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.
