Rebooting Life…

Loneys woods at sunsetAt the moment I feel a bit like I am wandering aimlessly through the forest… intellectually I know I will find the light I am looking for eventually.

I arrived home from a week of fun and relaxing collaborative and individual activities at the Assiniboia Artist Retreat. Thanks to the organizers and the Shurniak Art Gallery for a wonderful opportunity to connect with other artists from the prairie provinces.

I am all unpacked. There is something to be said for traveling light.  I have well over 4,000 images to sort, select and process. This will have to wait for now.

Reality has set in today. I only have three days to get all my packing and organizing done for two weeks of teaching and judging in Ontario. I am flying out early Saturday… The next two days are filled with appointments in Moose Jaw and Regina so I have to be careful not to start hyperventilating. Telling myself to breathe deeply and stay focused on the task at hand and the moment is top priority right now.

Once again I ask myself, why did I book myself so tightly? In reality, it is not always within my control, especially the appointments in town. But, I am working toward a lighter load – my calendar is completely empty after August and Art Quilt Campus.

Speaking of Art Quilt Campus, we have two full groups and I am very much looking forward to seeing so many familiar faces when we gather in August. I am starting to work on this year’s questionnaire for participants and am “dreaming” up a few new activities to promote creative problem solving and ways to explore new ideas.

Time to get back to work… Thanks for checking in!
