As an Artist, I torture myself with questions like, Who should I be?? What type of art do I want to create?? Can I be good enough at more than one type of Fiber Art?? What if who I am and what I like, appeals to no one but me??? Some days I am perfectly fine with that, others not so much. I've learned to satisfy my creative ideas lately when they occur. I find in doing so that not only am I not denying my desire to express myself, but I am also freeing up my mind to concentrate with joy on the other tasks in my life that need to be done that are maybe not so much fun. Over the years I have procrastinated in giving in to my creative ideas only to feel burdened by the same idea at a later time because the energy is gone from it and the motivation has disappeared. Today, I am allowing myself to do whatever it is that I want. My daughter has been using this wonderful phrase lately as is most of her generation " YOLO" It means You only live once!!!
Today, I am a child that will play with color. The energy I contain today will express itself in wool and become something beautiful.
