I’ve been kind of crazy busy lately. With more and more additives how do I manage? That is a great question that leads into something I want to discuss. It’s of a similar vein to my last post regarding loving our spaces. So about two or three weeks back I suffered a craving, which can be a good thing. It’s been unseasonably warm, almost muggy in the evening here, and I longed to sit by an open window with a cool breeze. I had the window in my creative/office space blocked by my big desk, and the little round table I regularly use against the wall.
The craving got me to thinking about how to rearrange the area, making the window reachable. So I swapped out the two desks. Okay so why am I taking up precious blog space to share this? Another great question… I was sitting here tonight in the quiet by myself when I realized more and more lately I do it. I stay up late, enjoying the cool night air.
I sit and I plan my week, the next day, or I work in my Midori Traveler’s Notebook. Or I paint or work on whatever project I’m consumed by. It’s not really about that in and of itself. The point is the space I have created soothes my soul. It’s really quiet late at night, and a soft breeze blows in cooling the house. All the lights are off minus the lamp you will see in the following pictures.
In the first one you can see the whole of the little round table, my owl, the lamp, the wind chimes, my framed Kanji, and the window. In the second picture, I did a close up to show you the soothing bits. The Kanji reads beauty and the wind chimes have a moon. Both pictures sort of represent the mood it creates, and that is why I chose to share them. I have found myself being more creative, productive, and achieving more with the relaxation. So I’d truly like to know, how do you soothe your soul? Is there a place that leads you to getting more done?
