Just for Today


I have been writing. Nothing special, nothing specific, but training myself to get words on paper, sometimes word count helps, blog posts are good for keeping me accountable, or often its just a quick story about the background life of a painting that I file away in a magic folder that I call "My Book".  (I know, so imaginative, right?) The process is keeping me grounded. When you work from home, activities that keep you grounded, accountable, present are very very did I mention very important. Otherwise, days become weeks become August become New Years Eve and what the hell happened anyway. Sometimes its just a 10 or 15 minute writing session, or every Friday all day marathon painting in the studio so I can do short sprints on the weekend. Whatever your creative process is, I honor it. Repetitive action in our creative pursuits yields inventory or books or blog posts or an art show or a portfolio. So today, I write. Nothing spectacular but I honored this March 17th St Patricks Day in Ashland OR where, in the span of 24 hours, we had torrential downpour of rain, warm sunny skies, freezing temps, snow, sleet, hail, howling wind and an apricot colored sunset as if none of the former had ever happened. And I documented my little slice of beautiful life. Just for today. xo
