So I'm reading, and thinking. Where do I want to go with my quilts ? What are my overall plans as opposed to the specific ones I have for the current ongoing crop. What are my goals, what new things do I want to try? What shows do I want to enter? What teaching do I want to pursue? I need to look ahead and plan. I'm taking a breather on the pathway, stopping at the overlook examining the view…behind and ahead.
Somebody emailed me and asked me "how do I get moving?" My problem is more how do I stop moving to allow myself to think and plan! Keeping moving isn't always the best idea, it's important to review. Looking back, is my current work stronger than that of several years ago? If it's not, then why not, what is missing? Am I repeating myself? or getting stale? or becoming too predictable and stylized? I've definitely see that happen to other people, but it takes a bold person to wrench oneself from a comfortable mode into a new venture.
so, if you never have...then give yourself time to visit the Overlook, and think....and now to get back over the dunes to make myself a nice cuppa tea! from the beach....thanks for reading! Elizabeth
