Any problem, big or small, within a family, always seems to start with bad communication. Someone isn’t listening. Emma Thompson
Yesterday’s quote (In order to be open to creativity, one must have the capacity for constructive use of solitude. One must overcome the fear of being alone.) was a real ride.
First of all I was very aware of being alone. C’mon creativity, I began thinking, don’t hesitate to step in here.
I finished reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult with a zillion thoughts racing through my head. Sit still, Laura. You need some grounding.
I picked up another book and knew immediately there were too many words. I wanted something different.
I roasted green beans and steamed carrots harvested from the backyard, then planted the gardenia a friend rooted for me a month ago.
I went to the bookstore and grocery and bought only unlined notecards and bananas.
I walked around Michael’s for nearly an hour, picking up one thing and then another. I bought nothing. But when I got home I cut my new notecards into tiny squares and filled a dozen with zentangles.
Open to creativity. That’s what you were, girl !
I know. Should I worry about what I might experience with the quote I picked for today?
