"Are you creating up a storm?"
A question asked of me today that I couldn't answer. Or I should say I simply didn't want to.
Because the answer is no, or at least the answer to the obvious question is no.
I haven't held a paintbrush yet today.
Because I'm in 'clean and clear and declutter and organize' mode as we begin the new year.
Piles everywhere. Things given away. Some thrown away, though I really really REALLY dislike throwing things away that have useful life in them but what do we DO with the minutia when we clean and clear the clutter?
Perhaps that's a question for another day. I digress.
The answer, the honest and real answer, to his question, is "yes."
I AM creating. Just not in the obvious "oh you're an artist so I bet you paint for hours every day" kind of way.
I'm creating order out of chaos. I'm creating peace midst the noise. I'm creating a better organized studio space that will have less distractions when I do actually sit at the easel. I'm creating room in my life by saying no to a lot of things I might have previously answered yes to so that when the Holy Spirit, my muse, whispers to me what the next best step is, I will be able to discern it.
So yes, I suppose I AM creating up a storm today. A more peaceful storm.
Rosie says it's ok with her, as long as I don't disturb her nap.
Love you all.
