I'm still struggling with making time for creative endeavors when work and other demands drain me of all creative desires. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be, but it doesn't feel right.
It's not that I don't have ideas, I do, and I have a lot of projects in the pipeline, but that pipeline is clogged right now and I need some creative Drano.
The Bead Society I belong to had a challenge based on color - this is my entry. It probably won't win any prizes, but that doesn't matter. This is the type of Drano I may need on a more regular basis and maybe I need to learn to provide that for myself. I enjoyed the challenge on many levels. Could I have pushed myself more to create something more? Certainly. Am I happy with the result. Certainly.
I need to learn how to be more structured (on many levels) in my life. I think that technology also messes with my attention span. Time to step away from the computer.
Today's quote comes from Stella Adler: Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.
