Well, that was interesting! Today my online time was invested in reading and responding to your comments on yesterday's post "too much Inspiration?". It's completely awesome to take in your distinct, honest perspectives. Thank-you SO much for sharing.
I'm a person who likes to focus
intently. These ponderings made me realize that the lack of focus
is what bothers me most. When new inspirations interrupt my planned
or current projects I personally feel disrupted, unstable, unfulfilled. I want to be really present with and to enjoy my projects... not to rush through them or let them pile up.
I don't think anything drastic is in order, but some kind of adjustment would be wise. For now I'm going to try going "offline" for the weekends, in terms of not taking in new inspiration. I think a rhythm of giving myself creative space each weekend may be just the thing! Well, and continuing to manage the flow of inspiration on weekdays too.
So, guess what you all made me do? Start a new project. No, it's not a bad thing; it's GOOD. This is one of those projects that came (mostly, I guess) from inside me. It emerged from my scraps, those Essex linen triangle trimmings who insist on being used.
And why-ever not when they hold all sorts of potential! I'll not be working on this again real soon, but starting it claimed it as a reality for me. I won't let this one go.
I will enjoy it!
