i'm filling my world
with spring flowers.... the promisee
and magic of life
i can't seem to stop adding
even the fallen flowers bring beauty
spring has spilled over
on to the page
splashing my journal
recently i have been feeling some pressue ~~pressure to create something different,
create a masterpiece, create something to submit, create what is really within me,
create something original. you get the picture. it has gradually eaten away at
the spontaneity and just plain fun of putting paint to paper, rip and gluing paper,
the journey of the next step as it arrives. too much thinking spoils the cake so to speak.
but orly reminded me to follow the process. to do one step at a time, look, really see
what's there and then take the next step and then the next. let the work
itself inform you, not the part of the brain that plans the whole thing out.
i then remembered to be surprised, delighted in the outcome,
that there are no mistakes, really, everything changes,
layers can be added along with a new understanding
of who you are and what your life is about.
one step at a time, one step in this present moment.
