Today, I needed a quiet place. My head was spinning with writing and painting projects. Not to mention my favorite way to procrastinate, experiments with color. The phone wouldn't stop ringing.
Time to unplug. I thought about Holly. She wrote a piece yesterday about living at a slower pace which really spoke to me. I've been so envious of her move to Germany, and am fascinated with watching her create her life. Her life is art. I am so grateful she is sharing her journey with us. She is teaching me a lot.
We can't all move to Germany. But we can all live as art. We can move at a slower pace where we are. This is my environment. I write about what I know. And for some odd reason, I love my city. I love Lake Erie and I love the sky. As you know, I even love gray.
And today, I am so grateful to be able to take a long walk in the middle of the day. A luxury I have seldom known. In my favorite season, Autumn.
