As always, there happens to be a serendipitous moment with some of my thoughts this morning and with Jamie’s Wishcasting Question today.
I found myself awake at 4 this morning. The baby woke up from a really congested head, and after i put him down i starting thinking about the next few months. I am doing the One of a Kind Show which is the biggest show in Toronto, if not Ontario which houses 850 vendors. I am looking for a house in Hamilton and am thinking about the holidays.
My day is structured with naps, lunch, another short nap and then off to drop the baby at daycare and only then do i have 3 hours alone to work on my art. I realized that i will have to get my start working till 9 to meet my quota of art. Sheesh…it’s funny to think that i have an art quota to meet. But that is the business of art, i suppose.
All of this to say that i need time to walk around my city aimlessly by myself looking for inspiration. Right now i am putting everything out into the world. I need to eat up some beautiful art, interesting landscape, fresh cool air, urban spaces along with quiet parks.
This week I will take some time to find what it is that i need that feeds me (other than the most yummy ice cream sandwiches from a new bakery in my neighbourhood called Bakerbots Bakery!) I need to feed my soul and only then will it feel like i have found balance!
I am wishing you all a great week and hope this finds you wonderful well!
