Read on for some thoughts about this years calendar:
For the past 7 years, I've made a calendar and this year I started to question..why?
As with lots of things lately, I've started to ask "why?"...It's become a time in my life where only the necessaryis put on the to-do list. The minutes in the day, especially minutes when I am alone, are so few and far between that it felt like a nice time to examine...why draw? why create?
So far, I've come to some conclusions and as the pragmatic Capricorn I am,there is a bullet pointed list below:
Making art makes me feel like I'm doing a better job at being a mom
I believe we are all creative inherently, especially as kids, and I fear the loss of that spiritual connection. I fear it will be lost in the practicalities of everyday life.
Making this calendar felt like a sort of devotion, a reminder to my future self that it's okay to map out time and space to think, dream and explore.
Lastly, I want Leon to know that taking time to experiment and not know what the outcome will be, is just as good as the end result. It's about the process.
