No Excuse Approach
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offerings.
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
While I love that spring has finally arrived in all its glory, I have been experiencing terrible allergy problems. The worst I have had in years. Hopefully once all the trees have finished dropping pollen, I will be less fuzzy and congested. Thankfully the crashing sinus headache has lessened. Thanks to everyone who expressed concerns. I definitely feel the pull of blogging again.
I have continued to make 4" x 4" collages. It is a great way to jump start a day. I added ants to this one because I am also suffering through an ant problem in my kitchen. Ack! Looking back through the collages, I can see how I was feeling and/or thinking about when I created them. It has not been easy to experience life with less energy and to put what energy I have into creating something, anything. At my pottery class last night, everyone seemed to be experiencing a lack of attention or frustration. Is it something in the air? My plan was to make boxes but after the first one, I switched to making a mask. Mission accomplished! I was focused and successful. I felt much better and went home happy. The "no excuse" approach to creating is working! Off to make some more art. Do you create something everyday?
