It's a full day already today. Real life is pressing. The kids are sick, the laundry needs to be done. There won't be much time (if any) for creating and escape. I'm sneaking my time right now with a cuppa coffee in hand, leftover pasta, and a few moments at the computer.
This is life.
I'm thinking of a quote from Thoreau, one that I've kept in my head for years, and it comforts me.
"All that I could say, then, with respect to farming on a large scale—I have always cultivated a garden—was, that I had had my seeds ready. Many think that seeds improve with age. I have no doubt that time discriminates between the good and the bad; and when at last I shall plant, I shall be less likely to be disappointed."
I've been working on a few projects as of late, some old, some new. The variety is at once exciting and overwhelming. I'm eager to finish something, and have a feeling they will all come together at once. (Sometimes I feel like a plate spinner...spin spin spin this one, then run to the next.) I can't wait to show you what I've been working on. Soon.
Happy Thursday everyone!
