I have chosen journey.
These past several weeks, I have cleaned, watched YouTube videos (intellectual ones, of course), done laundry, piddled and paced.
I have avoided the studio like the plague.
Several times I have forced myself into the studio. I've piddled and paced and run back downstairs to watch more intellectual YouTube videos.
Slowly, bit by bit, and piece by piece, experiments have been tried. The failure rate was high in proportion to the amount of time spent in the studio.
This week, I've been just a tad less reluctant to get into the studio. More experiments have been tried. Less have failed. There has been a success or two (actually three).
As I left the studio just a minute ago, I was thinking that I wouldn't have the opportunity to return until Tuesday. That thought saddened me. Then I realized that I had enjoyed my time in the studio today.
I have decided on the journey rather than the destination. For now.
Thanks to all of you who have sent me positive comments. I especially appreciate those who have sent me encouraging emails.
Soon I will share some photos. Not that they will show any completed pieces. They may show bits bound for the garbage, but that's better than nothing, huh?
Have a great holiday weekend!
