From the Heart

“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.”

A Secret Whisper From An Alleyway

“—if a painting really works down in your heart and changes the way you see, and think, and feel, you don’t think, ‘oh, I love this picture because it’s universal.’ ‘I love this painting because it speaks to all mankind.’ That’s not the reason anyone loves a piece of art. It’s a secret whisper from an alleyway. Psst, you. Hey kid. Yes you.”

The Law of Dormancy

“One reason that people have artist’s block is that they do not respect the law of dormancy in nature. Trees don’t produce fruit all year long, constantly. They have a point where they go dormant. And when you are in a dormant period creatively, if you can arrange your life to do the technical tasks that don’t take creativity, you are essentially preparing for the spring when it will all blossom again.”

Month of Me: Summary Slide

So, Month of Me wasn’t exactly the vacation I envisioned. Just because I decided to take a month off doesn’t mean life was on board with the idea.

But over the past 30 days I did learn a few things:

1.) You were into the daily digest format! I have received such positive feedback from the series that I will certainly have to revisit it in the future. After all, there is no shortage of homegrown talent to spotlight.

2.) I should have probably chosen a better acronym for my month off the grid. I didn’t anticipate being thanked for making someone a “mom”.

3.) This was a valuable exercise in learning how (in theory) to relax. And while I failed to become one with the universe, Sadie reminds me daily that just because “MoM” is over, summer isn’t. And I am still allowed to close my laptop, enjoy the sunshine, and chase tadpoles with her in the lake by our house every once in awhile.

Dial down. ♥
