It’s been awhile. Since I painted and didn’t feel frustrated or bored. I needed a break and I took one to think, process, give myself some loving kindness because that is the only place true and good creation can come from. And I was not practicing it. It seemed the pace of life and pressures and thinking clogged my creative filter. I’ve aired it out and have come back to the canvas today with a renewed delight in it. I do not know what will flow from the time I will spend with my brushes and canvas and colors but I do know that just wanting to be right here in this moment, present, is a gift I have missed. That is gift enough. Find your place to be still and declutter and do it daily. Don’t wait till the filter is clogged!
