Creative Rhythm Reset

August 8, 2015

Creativity concentration. When faced with a creative challenge or artistic task, I go into tunnel-vision concentration mode. All else fades away and falls off the to do list.

But everything I notice on the periphery gets stored somewhere in my head!

As soon as the Big Deal is over, my mind takes a short respite, then the Great Reset begins. Off I go, working on all the items that appeared to have lain dormant. Like…

  • Changing the light bulb that burned out last week
  • Sweeping the wood splinters from playful doggies’ chewing session off the patio
  • Gathering framing supplies from every flat surface in the house and returning them to their homes
  • Doing the laundry… and taking the time to hang it outside in the sunshine
  • Standing (still!) in the sunshine and looking at the curly clouds
  • Cleaning out the rotting cilantro from the refrigerator, and remembering to eat
  • Writing a blog post
  • And more

The Big Deal provided energy and creative passion and thorough enjoyment.

The Reset calms my heart, restores perspective, and prepares my soul (and space) for the next Big Deal!
