277/365: Finding My Center Through Art

Today I made:
a note to self, so I don't forget...

It's been a constant struggle lately to find calm and focus in my days, so that I can concentrate on my art and the things I want to create. Browsing through my photos tonight, I had an epiphany. What if I've been going about it backwards? Instead of waiting for a peaceful time (and state of mind) to pick up my creative work, what if I allow art to be my calm in the chaos? After all, art always leads me back to myself, my truth and what lies at the center of my heart.

Connecting with my creative source brings the highest level of focus that I've ever known. Perhaps the insights I've been searching for outside of myself will come through me when I'm in the act of making art.

I have a sense of deja vu, as if I've had this fleeting thought before and forgotten it in the hustle and bustle. What a thing to forget! The vibrant center of this daisy was the reminder I needed.

It is in creating that I find my most vibrant center.
