Looking at my World from a Different Place

Space and Time

I encountered this phantom woman on my morning walk. Is that an image of the former me or a new me emerging from my circumstances?

For the last few weeks, I have been dealing with an intense situation that has required me to be away from my creative space and taken nearly all of my time and attention.  I have not written or made images during this time.   This diversion has reinforced that the daily practice of creativity — at least for me — requires a consistency of time and space to do so.

I am struggling to create a new “normal” that will allow me at least a few minutes a day to practice.  This morning I returned to my morning pages and went walking with a camera in hand.

Slowly I will return to my practice.  More coming soon, I hope.

Even in the driest of creative climates, there are cactus blossoms.

And I hope to be coming back as fast as the Shanghai Express.

One thought on “Space and Time

  1. A photo a day can be a good place to start when life goes into overdrive. Even photographing the dishes piled up waiting washing can turn into a creative exercise – at the very least, it can turn into motivation to wash them. 🙂 Good luck.
