Breathe Slowly

While the mountains that surround us turn white with snow it’s all about deep breaths and carrying on at DarcyArts.

Midway through this holiday crafting season I think I finally understand the popularity of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster.

My inner monologue sounds a lot like this: “Must keep moving forward. Must not pause long for daydreaming or longing for the currently unattainable. Keep stitching, bitch!”

Sometimes I get blurry. Sleep restores my gumption.

While I don’t really address myself as bitch, pulling Big Soft Color into the world is my magnificent obsession.

I’m trying to stay focused but there have been moments in which new ideas wiggle through the screen needing to find some sort of expression. Those are the loose noodles my sketch book catches. This is the natural process. The stimulus overflow will give rise to next year’s creations. Amen.

Must go now to work, work, work. Spin, spin, spin. Need to make space for Thanksgiving Joy.
