After finishing all the things I had planned for today, and taken a nap, I’m now dragging myself back to the computer to find the blog post that disappeared. I am still unable to locate it, and if it finds it’s way back to it’s rightful place, that’s a bonus. I think the fault is with me! We have a Mac computer, and it saves everything automatically. I didn’t think (for the second time) about saving my post, and I lost it! How long will it take me to learn this lesson is anyones guess, but I’ll try!
This morning I was going on and on about the end of summer, and how as a kid I hated Labor Day, because school started the next day. As I grew up, and had kids of my own, I loved Labor Day, the kids go back to school! Now school starts at different times, in different places? My grand kids have already returned, and we celebrate that event. They love school, and welcome the start, and we love for them to start also!
The challenge for this week is each day, sketch, paint, collage, or otherwise create something from the yard. Something that grows, or lives in your yard. If you have time, at the end of the week, you will have five works that will help get you motivated to think about the following week. Start slow, and small if you like, what matters is that you did it. Don’t compare your work with anyone else’s, yours is from your journey! Make it as easy on yourself as you can! No point in aiming for something so complex that you are discouraged from creating regularly. It’s easy to bottle up, and difficult to get creativity flowing again.
When you are finished, post on Facebook, or send your picture to me, (Karensamenow@me.com) and I’ll post it with your name on it, on this blog.
Have a great afternoon, relax, and enjoy the rest of Labor Day!
