Not Creative, but Necessary






















This weekend, I actually found the floor of my studio! Now, that doesn't mean it is empty, no, not yet, but we are moving in the right direction. I am determined to be done by the end of the month. I will be creative again, and do it in a nice and organized place. I still have too much stuff, not enough room, but it is getting better. I am going to take the rest of the year off teaching after this quartewr and develope fresh new classes for the new year. I am going to purge stuff and pare down activities and really try to get to what is important to me. I am not able to do everything. I have to figure out what I really want, what I can do, and what I must do to achieve it. Surprisingly, it is feeling good to get rid of things. Not some things, of course. Some things are hard. But on the whole I think I will benefit from slimming down on some of the stuff and commitments. I have an awful lot of interests, but I need to figure out what is really important. Anyway, here are some before and after photos.

Organizing and paring down is in it's own way creative and always a good way to clear your mind. Good for you!!!
