I go from one thing to another and then find myself distracted from the main chores and start to empty out a drawer, clean out a closet and oh yes I have to find time to wash the windows, clean up my garden and pay the bills.
As I add more things to my list I realize that today will be a repeat of last weekend and the many others that end with me having filled my off hours with the stuff that must be done and never having time to do the things that I wanted to do.... which is some time to pick up my knitting needles, a paint brush with my box of colours or take out my sewing machine and play with my fibre stash.
I think that creativity is about stepping away and getting lost in some breathing space that allows you to let your imagination play again. We have never lost that childlike quality to pretend, play and do the silly things that fill us with joy. I think today I need to play with colours so to heck with the dust bunnies... they get to live another day.
