The View from Here

For the past while I haven't been blogging as much. I've sometimes wondered why, and sometimes been so caught up in what I was doing that it seemed obvious; I'm busy. And yes, busy-ness has been a piece but so has it been about the shift in focus of my life, or what I perceived to be a shift.

When I started writing this blog, it was as a structure to support my creative process. To remind me to explore my creative expression, to share it and to connect with other people who are doing the same. And lately, as I've been developing my business, I haven't spent much time painting, drawing, photographing, and so I haven't been here.

And then it hit me. Developing a business is a creative act. Building an authentic life you're wild about is a creative act. So here I am. I've decided to show up and share with you what I've been creating in my life and in my work. It may not be a painting, but I'm hoping its beautiful.

Looking forward to sharing again.

Wow, I totally relate to what you're saying (big surprise?! heehee). I've noticed I haven't been as "creative" as usual, although I did get some painting in on Wednesday. So, I love your new perspective that I am already doing a creative act by living the life I live. Thank your for reminding me of that.

And YES what you're "painting" with your life is BEAUTIFUL!

That´s what living is all about - glad to be tagging along.

It's so great when you realize that being creative doesn't have to stay in any boundaries - I came to that conclusion a couple years back.

It can be painting or drawing, but it can also be cooking, canning, or creating a business!!

I'm looking forward to seeing more of what you've been working on!!

This is perhaps the biggest creative task you have ever taken on Jamie, I love hearing about it. It's so inspiring.
