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.
