Some of us seem to be lacking consciousness these days… especially in the political arena
So I find it good practice to step away from the barrage of news and focus on creating instead, it keeps me grounded. For a while I had difficulty creating in light of all the changes and uncertainty. But these days there’s a newfound optimism. I can’t control anything external, but I can control what I choose to put my attention on and these past few months have reminded me of that.
So It is with renewed passion, excitement and love, that finds my every waking moment in the art studio, creating and loving what I do! While at the same time, hopefully bringing a little more beauty into the world. As artists, perhaps that’s our ‘calling’ these days?
Do you agree?
Wishing you endless creativity in whatever you do!
Sending you love, compassion & strength,
