Saying hmmmmm.........

Anne Lamont from Bird by Bird:

And then the miracle happens.  The sun comes up again.  So you get up and do your morning things, and one thing leads to another, and eventually, at nine, you find yourself back at the desk, staring blankly at the pages you filled yesterday.  And there on page four is a paragraph with all sorts of life in it, smells and sounds and voices and colors and even a moment of dialogue that makes you say to yourself, very, very softly, "Hmmm."      


Cliff Hanger with Possibilities

It was hard to do, but it had to be.  Spring cleaning in the studio--done.  I tend to keep bits and pieces of things gone wrong.  It is this thing in me that see potentiality even when the piece is beyond just flawed.  But out it goes to make room for new things and fresh possibilities.

Now that the new garage door is installed, my space feels open and full of light.  The old door had no windows and was dark wood.  This one is white with windows.  Now I know it's only a garage door.  But this garage door has changed the feel I get when working.  I get light.  Sunlight.  It streams in. Happy faces appear.
