Conquering The World In My Undies

Conquering The World In My Undies

Making time to be creative is part of the natural flow of my day. Like many artists, I have developed several, tiny rituals to invite inspiration. I call it ‘Gathering My Totems’ and it goes a little something like this: I make myself a hot, frothy cappuccino, water my small garden and potted plants, greet my studio muse with gratitude, respect, and trust, light my favorite piñon incense, put on some classical music… And I get to work. By mid-day I meander up a wooded trail with my beloved dogs and eventually return to my studio for the afternoon. I’ve left out a lot of details, but that’s the gist of it. Some days I am so focused that I ignore things like eating and getting dressed… I call it ‘momentum’. It’s amazing how much one can accomplish in their undies. My surroundings and creative space provide, in addition to freedom from typical and traditional restraints, a sanctuary. In the summer, I leave the studio door open so I can hear the splashing creek and whirring hummingbird wings, and so I can better my chances of letting in a wild idea. What ritual and/or workspace helps you stay creative, productive and inspired?
