It's time to rest a little, between some rather strenuous chores and some intense Legato work. Legato keeps growing, and spreading to more towns... it's great, but time consuming. I think that regular "down-time" is essential so I am not totally consumed by the monster I have created.
Winter is coming (eventually), with open fires, toast, and soup. One of my favourite theorists has a nice quote doing the rounds of blogs at the moment, some salve for my soul as I don't have time to paint:
"A first-rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting". - Abraham MaslowI have been reading a few blogs as I relax, to give my brain a bit of a work-out as my body unwinds. One of my favourites produced this wonderful article today, discussing a meaningful life and happiness. The blog is "The Daily Good".
Today I am grateful for:
- the olive harvest
- photos from the Antipodes
- a little help from my friends
- a range of music
- and two little dogs who keep me company while I work and dream.
