Creativity comes from those moments of stillness in my life. Wandering, seemingly aimlessly, following intuition and whatever sparked my interest. Stopping and enjoying it. Taking it in. Really seeing what’s there.
It’s at that moment that creativity flows for me.
Sitting on a huge rock overlooking green pool right now. Am orchid saw me wander back to the car for my other camera. Am thinking that perhaps more than one camera isn’t such a good idea. Like too many lenses. Increased thoughts about having the wrong one.
My mind wanders back to the view. The sounds of the ocean. Fresh smells of salty air. The sprinkle of rain has cleaned everything. So so beautiful.
Back to making art. Let’s see what I can create from this beautiful spot.
