Distracted from Morning Pages
I found myself distracted over this last month by little mundane things like trying to make a living. And while I was still coming up with ideas for my creative projects, I wasn't putting them into action. I was too busy spinning in place. When I let this happen, sooner or later I feel the unbalance that this creates, an unbalance that I lived with for many years and am now consciously trying to drive out of my life. Writing the Morning Pages, taking even a few minutes in the evening to work on a watercolor sketch, reading the artist's blogs that I have posted here... all these things serve as a counterbalance to the nitty gritty and free up my mind to be more productive and less hectic. So I fell back into bad habits for a few weeks, fuel was added to the fire by my internet problems, and I am climbing back onto the track that I want to be on. One good thing is that I never put the watercolors away and I carry my morning pages journal and my camera everywhere I go. I feel saner already.
