Attention please. My inner voice tells me I could use some.
Because aren't we all a little overrun by distraction?
There are fires to put out
I seem to have a steady run of fires to put out which doesn't exactly coddle my creativity.
Maybe I need to step back and get a better perspective.
Maybe the fires are actually just little puffs of smoke.
My mother always tells me, just think of Scarlett O'Hara, "tomorrow is another day".
Then there's the computer
I'm trying to manage my time more effectively,
picking and choosing only the inter-places that I love.
The best time of day
My rug hooking friend Val says that she gets her best creative work done in the morning. Good point.
We all have our sweet spot during the day and mine will be reserved for creative thoughts and endeavours rather than passive time-spending.
I might have to snap an elastic around my wrist as a reminder for this one but nevertheless I'm committed.
Note to self. I should also remember that not everything needs to be accomplished at warp speed.
The thing that I like most about eating a grapefruit is that it takes time. I take great pains peeling away to the fruit so that I can fully enjoy it's colour, texture, scent and taste.
I need more grapefruit in my life.
Everyday I try to find a little something that makes life interesting. A good book, a wagging dog, a cool breeze, tea with a friend.
Here are my field notes about making, discovering, and enjoying a simple, slow, handmade life.
Thanks so much for visiting. I appreciate your spending time with me.
