Certainly twenty, or thirty years ago my life was much busier, so what makes this time more hectic, or why do I seem to have less time? One reason could be, I don’t have as much energy as I ounce had, or maybe I’m trying to do too much, and not getting anything accomplished in the end! All that Bee Pollen makes me go in circles!
What ever it is, it’s time for a change!
I keep busy, and at the end of the day, I’m ready to slow down. The thing is, I haven’t made time, or felt like I had the time for my creativity! What I love to do the most, is something I haven’t done in quite a while. Quite a while could mean a week to me!
I’ve been working on my garden…
Spending time with three of my grand-kids…
Shopping…I had to buy new dishes…
AND, A couple of times one of my girlfriends, and myself signed up for an evening of painting while drinking wine! Oh yeah, it was fun! I can’t say any of my paintings will ever hand in La Louvre, but after drinking wine, who cares?
I’m still working on the Hacienda painting, and if I don’t start playing with it, I’m sure it will go into the stack of canvases that are all screaming at me to finish them!
All the time, I still have a dog, and a cat, and a husband that needs to be cared for, and get attention!
So what now?
Then it suddenly occurred to me…….at 4:30 this morning
Instead of laying awake until 7:30 in the morning so I don’t disturb my husband, I need to get up, have my tea, and paint! Or even write, anything would be an improvement! I use to do this a long time ago, but our home is small now, and any noise seems to disturb him. So for Fathers Day, I’ve decided to buy him – ear plugs! And, start getting up really early when my creative juices are flowing!
That should do it!
