A quiet time

I am experiencing a quiet time in my creative life. The weather has been so hot and humid that all I want to do is curl up in the recliner and read whilst enjoying the airconditioning.

Yesterday my creativity was used to cut a friend's hair. (just one of my past professions) Since she is an artist also we discussed how design is design whether you are drawing, painting or cutting hair. I remembered a certain "hair artist" onstage at an event I attended saying this: "I would rather have someone who is artistic cut my hair than someone who has perfect technical skills but is not artistic" What a testament to art and artistic vision. Somehow that morsel of wisdom has stayed with me for over twenty years.

The Quiet times are for reflection and internal growth. They are not "wasted time" no, they are treasures.

Peace :) Gene
