The Long Hot/Cold Summer

Sunglasses by Paul Smith (2003), Striped Shirt Dress by Nili Lotan, Bracelet by me, expression one of tried patience.

I need some Structure in my life. Some routine!  I've always needed to be organized, and have my ducks in a row in order to be creative!  It sounds crazy but it's true.  Most artists and writers need to have a routine in their day, and constance in order to find those fluid moments of inspiration.  With the long summer break (kids out of school, bored, restless, fighting amongst themselves) I have not been able to spend anytime on my creative pursuits, except one bracelet I made (see above).  I have to carve out a minute here and a moment there.  Not enough time to get my creative juices flowing.   

This has been an unusual summer for me.  Traveling home to New York to visit with friends and spend some time at the beach, and then back left with a good 2 1/2 weeks left with no travel plans.  No summer camp.  I think I'm going to re-think that next year.

So here's hoping with the upcoming start of school, I get back on track. I hope all you moms out there have survived as well.  I know at least one who can't wait!
