In Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis talks
about the virtue of temperance.
A virtue which I severely lack.
I'm going to exercise every day for the rest of my life.
I'm not ever going to __________ again.
I'm going to ___________ every day.
For reals this time.
And it spills over into my art.
If I don't have at least an hour, forget it...
What's the point?
But the more I read about other artists' art making schedules and practices...
no one with small kids has huge chunks of time and energy. no one.
they all seem to say... I take my time where I can get it.
in little doses here and there and an ocassional long nap time or late night.
So, that's what I'm gonna do.
I'm going to work on taking little snippets of time here and there
to do whatever it is that needs to be done.
Or that I want to do.
These are friends and their art journals that have been inspiring me lately.
I've wanted to art journal for so long.
And I've never made time.
So I'm going to try (TRY)
to do a little each day.
even if it's only 10 minutes.
I will let you know how it goes...
How about you?
How do you find time to do the things you love?!?
