My daughter is spending her morning being extremely creative, making cards for friends with stamps, markers, and stickers. I am jealous. I miss that wild abandon, that intense concentration on something inspired. This blog is my attempt at living the creative life on a daily basis… being able to focus on things constantly on my mind, such as spirituality, writing, poetry, photography… things that frame my experience. But I’m tired!!! I can hardly keep up with this two-year-old. Maybe this is why pre-historic humans used to have babies when they were really young, like 13 or 14. By age 35 I would have had my grandchildren over to my cave for awhile and sent them back to their parents. 🙂
I’m inspired and encouraged by my growing group of readers here to be accountable to my goals and to do better every day. So I will try to ignore the dishes in the sink and the unread mail and learn from my daughter to be in the moment. I may even take a nap.
