This morning seems like a distant memory. I have a fuzzy notion that somewhere between the birds calling me from my dreams and my naked feet touching the floor, I fell into that melancholy that announces winter is on the way. But something happened… tonight I am light and full of potential. After several weeks of ruminating, today I decided to stop spreading myself across so many projects and to concentrate on what I do best : create without boundaries. I just got side-tracked by the allure of being slightly more financially stable and began a little foray into jewellery-making. I’m not a jeweller and there are a several million out there already, so what was I thinking? I have a lot of interesting ceramic rings and necklaces but I was starting to lose the plot. I haven’t painted for weeks, my manuscript is withering on my hard-drive and my heart was racing in the morning, not in a moment of passion but because I was feeling anxious. Crap! Something had to change. So today I made a pact with myself. Be joyful and follow my heart.
