Puddles

March 30, 2010

Oh Creative One! My house is thankfully quiet after the busiest of days yesterday. Suffice to say that we’ve now got a faulty major appliance in the middle of our kitchen floor. There is a saying that each child you have holds a lesson that you need to learn. Just now, with my daughter, that lesson is that I need to slow down, that many of my time limits are self-imposed, that taking time to watch the concentric circles in a puddle after splashing through is of utmost importance. With this in mind, I’m letting the kids sleep in today. We’ll arrive at school in our own time. We will get there, but on our terms today.

Growing Creative One, I offer a similar thought about your work. Consider that each piece has a lesson for you to learn. It might that you learn to be angry without being destructive or that you learn to be tender with the sorest part of your soul. Maybe it is as simple as enjoying just the right shade of red for all its beauty and gifts.
