It has been a busy summer so far. Lots of parties and company
and building a condo two and half hours away
have taken a big chunk out of
the lazy, hazy days of our summer.
While I love the commotion of family and friends
and wouldn't trade one second of our get-togethers,
I tend to get a little fussy when I don't have
my quiet time to putter in my studio
or sit under a tree in the back yard
with a big fat book.
So instead of taking the time
to open up messy paints and inks and such,
I have found my meditative and creative sojourn
with some scraps of paper and a glue stick.
Soft classical music and the sound
of scissors clipping away.
Just the thing to
quiet my head
and soothe my fraying nerves
with as little mess as necessary.
