My studio time has been so productive lately - I have learned to spread numerous projects out across my table and go from one to another as my mind wanders. It really just means keeping the wandering on track, while letting the muse lead me along.
I used to find this disconcerting and wonder if I would ever get anything done.
But now I see that each project meanders along at it's own pace, and with its own rhythm and finally - things get done.
I am so grateful to have the time and space to work this way, and that the "deadline" work which requires focus is only a small part of what I have to do each day.
My journal really is my helpmate/coach/therapist/diary all together.
A book that illustrates my wandering path.
I give thanks today to my journal and to this process which feels like a sacred ritual.
