Productive Day

Yesterday was wonderfully productive - weaving on the red basket, testing different resists for dyeing cotton towels, sharing in a Bahá’í fireside.  It got me wondering why it's easier to work on my art here on the island.  Because it's inspiring?  Or because I'm "away" from normal life, so I give myself permission to be creative, and to devote the time to it that it needs?

So what does that say about how it will be when I move to the island permanently??  Will the creative juices still flow if I'm here all of the time?  Do I need a "retreat" setting to be open to inspiration?

Just thoughts to ponder as I work and weave.  I was an artist before I got here.  It's just so much easier to work here.
