what my soul needed.
Yesterday was one of those days where I did nothing that I should of and only what I wanted--- sort of. I rejected my to do list and worked in my studio on something I have been wanting to do but avoiding. It felt great to be taking a little risk, cutting, sewing, getting my machine out...
Then I ran out of thread, my daycare called and T had to come home(pink eye), we had to fit in a last minute Dr.appt and life happened. But the end of the day was much like the beginning. Ignoring what should be happening and doing what my soul needed. T joined me in my studio at my table, drawing while I stitched. Our first simultaneous art making moment. It was awesome and made me look forward to many more.
I then went to a reading of a friends and was moved by a few of the writers and reminded, once again, how important it is for my soul to go to such events. To be in a room of creative types that are trying to comment upon and share the poignancy and beauty of this life.
But of course all of this leaves me today with a laundry list of more stuff to do that I ignored yesterday and the desire to do none of them. I would prefer to just get lost in my process of making all over again.
