I find that the deeper I delve into my creative mind and paint hours on end, the more I lose my concept of time. It proves to be difficult to fit into the organized world at times. Then I get philosophical about it all. What is time? Why do I struggle with it? Can I not just be here...now...ummm...well I am here now, and it feels pretty good....
I tried to organize my time by purchasing a nice full size appointment book. The problem is that it has pages. Weeks are hidden within its depths and they are out of sight/out of mind. I often panic thinking I must have forgotten something that is coming up and dash through the pages only to find what I was thinking of is coming up in a few days or a few months a way. Who knew? It eludes me.
I have come up with what I feel is a great idea. Even better than the appointment book. I printed off calendar pages to December 2014. I am going to lay them out on a cork board so I can see them all at the same time. Then I will be able to see time as a whole entity, not as scraps tossed about in my fleeting thoughts or a black book.
I will keep you posted!

I have purchased a newer vehicle which makes me happier. Now I can fit paintings in the back. I had a Mazda protege hatchback which I loved but it was just too small. I have got myself a 2006 Mazda 5. I have been looking at them for quite sometime. It is what they call a "micro mini van". Much more artist friendly without the bulk of a regular sized van. Now I can fit both my granddaughter and paintings at the same time.
So as you can see...my writing is still flat. So I had better paint. My mood is better suited for painting at this time.
