It was snowing out and I felt like I was in the center of a snow globe. Although there were decorations that needed to be put away and I certainly needed things from the market, I wanted to get lost in creating something.
I felt that feeling you feel when you are in the moment. Not wanting to leave that joyful feeling and find yourself lost in busyness yet again.
I put away my “To Do” list and brought out some art supplies.
I made a cup of tea, put a sugar cookie on a plate and walked over to my kitchen table.
Seems to me that no matter how old I have been, or how old I get, when I just want to sail into my imagination, I begin by making cards.
I think it is the way knitters feel when all that you can hear is the clicking of needles and you see the look of contentment on their face.
That peaceful place we can go when we are on the path to where our imagination wants to take us.
I watch as the wind swirls the snow outside my window and listen to the music content to be taking time to just be, that place I am most happy.
I think that when we are lost in the world of creating, it is as if we are resting in between the notes on our sheet of music. Just taking time to dance with our creative muse, and renewing our strength as we lean on the melodies of our life and magically create.
Sugar cookies, a snowy day, lovely music and taking time to create. Perhaps you won't be hearing the clicking of knitting needles, but if you were here you would see the look of contentment on my face.
oday is Mosaic Monday, and Mary is hosting the first in 2010. I love Mary and her beautiful blog which always brings me back to that place I want to linger, that place where we are reminded to embrace the beauty around us.
The song for this post is Melodies of Life.
