Me and Sam Lardner dancing the last days of August
What do you do when you walk in to your creative space? When you close the door? What happens? Do knocks suddenly disturb you? Does your mate love a closed door?
Some days my family hovers out there, talking over what they’d prefer to lay at my feet and I cannot help but stop, lay down my brushes or pens or pencils and sanity and open the door and be the Mom, the center of the spiral here.
I have several more for you, but today, Miranda Hersey Helin posted this, which is perfect.
Have you delved in to Pinterest?
Here is what I am pinning lately.
I like to play there, let myself be stirred by the images I put up and what others share.
And, when I am just stuck and cannot deal with the interruptions from outside my door or within my own head, I start dancing.
Today, it is to Sam Lardner and his new album, which is exquisite.
You can get a taste of Sam’s music on his site.
How about you? Is there a ripple effect that happens when you close a door?
Does quiet time to think come easily for you?
Are you, like me, celebrating the beginning of school days?
Or, like my friends who are waving good bye to their college bound teens, feeling the quiet a bit too heavy on your shoulders?
Dance. Dance. Dance.
And let your hands express what your heart has to say.
