I’ve been carving out time for Art Every Day Month, and really enjoying the variety of creative activities. This week will be harder. I have a chopped up schedule of meetings all week.
I hear friends who work for other people suggest that it is easier for those of us who run our own companies to take the time to do the things we want to do. Maybe, in the abstract. However, since responsibility for everything comes back to me, I know the price to be paid if I don’t get things done.
Tension between alert and rest
I was thinking about this space of taking time and getting things done as I was coloring this cat in Photoshop. There’s something about the way many cats rest yet remain on the edge of alert that got me contemplating this balance.
I’m still thinking about my creative work as rest, reward, and something I get to do if I finish my chores. Old habits die hard!
