One person mentioned a teacher who once said "Beware the 10,000 Beautiful Things" That statement really touched me and I have been mulling over that statement all week, as I witness all my creative projects tugging at me like my many children calling out for attention, as I neglect them by sitting in front of the computer, looking at the beautiful inspiring art and creativity posted from all over the cyber universe.
Can I find time for my one true love, or can I not shame/blame/judge myself for my lovely, affairs with other media, my quickies into others art on line, and flitting from media to media.
I am working on this and am curious about other peoples ability or lack of it to focus on one thing. So if you are reading this and struggle with this challenge, let me know how you make peace with it.
As an art therapist, and creativity facilitator, being able to teach, inspire and support people in many way of creative expression is a benefit, as an artist it keeps me from delving deeply into the exploration of one process and the infinite variety of ways I can explore theme.
I am curious to hear of how others approach, invite, explore or set boundaries on the 10,000 Beautiful Things. Let me know. Ciao
