Balancing a creative life amidst a renovation has been a HUGE challenge for me. I’ve learned to keep my notepad handy and check in with my laptop semi-regularly. I’ve learned to not beat myself up over the unfinished paintings and stories.
I’ve written a dozen or so haikus over the years. Here are two I recently wrote. I guess it’s easy to feel accomplished in 17 syllables!
On a gravel path
blue butterflies slow dancing
I must dream awake
When angels greet us
will we conjure blood and bones
or will we make grace?
3) The Little Prince
As some of you know, I am currently obsessed with the author/aviator, Antione de Saint-Exupéry. He wrote The Little Prince and a few other works, which I am reading ALL right now…or attempting to. ;-) This sudden curiosity sprang from a dream I had about him and his wife, Consuelo. I’m not sure if the idea sent down in my dream is meant to be a book or not. I’m doing my character research by reading both Antione’s and Consuelo’s books. I’m not sure if I will write a story about them–time will tell. For now, they are both near and dear to my heart.
Thank you for reading. Are you currently obsessed with something unusual? If so, let us share in our mutual weirdness. :-D
