Did you know my creativity and productivity are rebellious? Yeah, the minuet I decide I'm just gonna chill with the kids and do the absolute minimal for survival, I suddenly get the urge to make ALL THE THINGS, to take long walks, or finish spinning that fleece. I find myself bringing all the Christmas mugs to the basement, wanting to go on outings, and fighting the urge to reorganise... I have problems y'all!
In all seriousness I am enjoying the freedom to create the summer days have given me. I love how my kids have taken control of so many of the chores (so they can have electronic time). How I can sit and spin, knit, weave, or do yoga if I feel the urge, its all so uncrushed and natural, I'm already planning how I can bring this flow into the school year. I love the feeling of being myself, and I am most myself when my creativity can ebb and flow naturally.
Oh, so in aforementioned cabin fever moment Jake and I had the same idea of going to see the art in the "legal graffiti area" its always changing and my soul is always delighting in the colour and sheer brilliance of this place. We grabbed some food for a picnic from the grocery store and headed out, our expectations are always exceeded. We are always blessed with a fresh pair of eyes and a heart filled to the brim. we need this place, it makes our heart sing and our hands itch to create the beauty only we can bring to the world.
(obviously I have to share it with you)
