I was going to write about sunsets and inspiration but I'm writing about perspiration instead.
The good, old, honest hard working kind of sweat and the kind that comes with excitement.
Yup, it's been that kind of week. And while I might feel the strain and pain a bit, I'm happy.
I always feel best when I'm doing something creative and that could be a wide range of things. It could be picking out new light fixtures or painting a room. Throwing clay, glazing or making a mask. Making my own pizza for dinner. Loading the kiln. Writing blogs, press releases, pitches, emails to media, setting up interviews to promote my local open studios tour. Or even, figuring out how to pill my cat twice a day without a struggle.
I've done it all this week.
Which is why I'm a day late posting this blog on my own personal blog. But that's life, isn't it? If there's one thing I've learned along this winding road of life, it's the bends that make it interesting. Balance is not a single straight beam that you walk through life on with pious poise. It's a see saw. There's up and down and busy and slow.
I lloved the see saw as a kid, maybe, I still do.
Hard work is far better than hardly working, in my opinion. I always feel better when I'm doing something. But there are going to be those slower days, too. Ah...the see saw of life!
