Not enough hours...
still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all
the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the
friends I want to see."
I love that. It totally captures what goes on in my mind half the time... just add in "art I want to make" (and maybe subtract a few walks) I have come to love Pinterest.com this fall purely because it is one GIGANTIC inspiration-extravaganza. Every time I go there, I pin a bunch of things that were "oooh! That would be great as a....." sort of stuff. Those and the millions (well, maybe not MILLIONS) of doodles in sketch books and on Starbucks napkins.... all of things I want to make, or at least TRY to make.
And there aren't enough hours in the day. There are barely enough hours in the day to make the things I ALREADY thought of... let alone adding NEW stuff...
but it is almost that time of the year.... the scary time that comes between Tucson and spring shows.... the time when income is not guaranteed, but that production time is accompanied by no travel, which means time in the evenings to write patterns, play with new ideas... TO CREATE!!!
That window of time is often too short, and this year, because I'll be doing art festivals in addition to teaching and bead-shows, it will be a little chaotic.... but I'm READY for some creative time... to let my mind wander and take chances that something won't be perfect... and just MAKE ART.
But for this month... there are definitely not enough hours in the day to think all the thoughts, read all the books, etc. Because this month's quote is from the 1980's Dunkin Donuts ad....
It's time to make the donuts....
tiny blah blah blah...
coffee - YES! Cinnamon Dolce Latte which continues to be FREE!!! Thank you blog readers!!!
