15 Minute Tasks

September 16th, 2010

I can’t remember where I read about doing a 15 minute task in the morning — meditating, drawing, playing music, etc., but I’m trying to do that when I come home from work. Because I can’t think straight in the morning, and I can’t get up early enough to add creativity to shower, breakfast, make lunch, blow dry hair, pack workout clothes, get dressed and find keys. I like drawing and painting at night because it totally occupies my brain and hands. It’s a little transition from work and worry to being home, being sheltered, being the most me. This is the chair in my living room, which in real life is covered with a beautiful aqua-colored fabric from Maine Cottage with a tiny faint red wine stain on one corner. Just to keep it from being too perfect. I love drawing the fat contours of it, the curls and swirls — one day I hope to get it right.

  1. I paint but I almost never draw. I need to be bold and dare to put pencil to paper.
