I am spending time in my kitchen today, it’s all there for me, my baking table, my desk with my laptop and steps away in the next room, my studio. I am in a whirlwind today because I am baking cookies for the store, making art for a small commission and, now, writing. I am happy, creativity does that you know. Just wanted to make note of that, just wanted to take my personal effects and put it out there so that perhaps, you, too, find a way to let some of your innate creativity explode within a place of realism. Whether it is a cake, a DIY project or just painting your front door navy blue, I hope you find “it”…today. And if you do, you will be happy.
In case you need a little push towards creativity, other than this “shove”, I found a blog that I enjoy. It is by Ann Drake. These particular words of hers drew me in… “This house is many things. Most importantly it’s a safe place for my family. At the end of the day this is where we return. It’s where my heart is. It’s home.” http://www.onsuttonplace.com/
A simple post about home and its importance…All of this made me think about words creating thoughts and then, hopefully, action. I thought of my somewhat neglected blog, this one, Sketches of My Day, and I remembered why I started it, it was a friend, a place to sit with coffee and tell what I was thinking, a place of words, words that expressed, words that I could read and reread and try to sort through my day. That’s all it is, my day, my thoughts, my tiny space to jot down what I do so that sometimes, when I need to hear myself, to reassure myself, I can go there. Anyway, if by some chance, I connect with someone, someone who chooses to read these simple words and sometimes tangled thoughts, then that is wonderful and I would feel some purpose has been served other than my own.
I realize how powerful our words are but how useless they are as only thoughts.
