A Spectacle Worth Lingering In.

As creators, I think we all have a tendency to constrict our sights on the end result. {And rightfully so…} But sometimes I find this natural impulse to be quite crippling. It can rob us of the grand display of rugged beauty that rests in the chaos of our creating.

I was convicted of this the other night as I admired the healthy batch of loveliness I just spun, which was clinging to the bobbin like budding puppy love. As I collected the night’s scraps to toss in the trash, I found myself entirely romanced by their radiant complexity. I paused myself in the beautiful mess to inspect these “creator’s crumbs.” And lo, there in the dross of my creative hour was a residual of ropy remnants like sinewy clouds. A sight awfully dazzling to me…a spectacle worth lingering in.

May I graciously encourage you, dear artists, to abide watchful in your creative doings. May you unapologetically pursue the element of surprise in your work and seek to explore the undomesticated particles of your efforts. You never know what sort of awe-inspiring exhibition you may find yourselves in.
