capacity for delight
Ever since I gave up my “separate from the house” studio, I’ve been struggling to find a place for art in my life. I’m writing more than I ever have, but I still have the urge to make things once in awhile.
We are planning a move into a house not yet rented (but maybe found?) and I look forward to having some space to spread out. I’d love to just have all my tools out and waiting for me to accept the call of my muses even if I abandon the project midway.
I carved out a teeny space in our teeny apartment (430-460 square feet for two adults and a dog) and a few weeks ago realized that tiny as it is, it is a nice little place for me to write or toy with my art supplies.
It reminds me of this Julia Cameron (I think) quote:
“The capacity for delight is the ability to pay attention.”
I’m doing OK in this area.
And speaking of doing OK?
Notice my vintage text thrift score…all letters (upper and lower), numbers and symbols for $8.00. I am thrilled. Over the moon!
Have a fine day.
