In my dreams

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
Twyla Thorp

Spending the past hour or so trawling through Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday section on her blog has made me pine for a week at home to create and play.

Oh how I long for the time and the solitude to immerse myself elbow deep in paints and crayons and watercolours and inks and all sort of things deliciously artistic. To play, to sketch, to get some drippage with paint, to glue and cut and to texture all on one big divine canvas.

Before the Craziness Begins

It's nearly 8 and

  • the house is quiet = bliss
  • we have visitors for a few days = nice
  • Tony's shoulder stayed where it's suppose to be playing football yesterday = relief
  • my stomach is grumbling = hungry
  • we're counting down to school holidays = joy
  • I'm in need of some creative respite = inspiration
  • everyone is asleep or quiet = stealing moments of peace = grateful
