One thing I’m learning on my ceramics journey is there’s a peace in being creative for creativity’s sake. Several of my pottery creations have been flops, some are successful, some surprise me, but all of them are imperfect. None of the failures stop me from doing it. While I’m learning at a slow and steady pace, I find it’s the meditative nature of the process of creating I find most appealing.
I returned to California this week after closing up the house in Florida and have spent the past few days just reading and resting. One thing I know from past holiday seasons is that if the decorating and holiday activities are for the sake of doing because you enjoy it, and not just for show, the season is far more enjoyable. I have a simple ornament project to share this week and then I’ll be starting on a little decorating in our living room to welcome my daughter home from college.
