Blossoms and Time

The creative process is not like a situation where you get struck by a single lightning bolt. You have ongoing discoveries, and there’s ongoing creative revelations. Yes, it’s really helpful to be marching toward a specific destination, but, along the way, you must allow yourself room for your ideas to blossom, take root, and grow.

I’m looking at a calendar tonight and am shocked to admit it’s been one month since my last post… wow.  I can honestly say it’s not for lack of desire, I miss everyone here, and I’m really tempted to say it’s because I’ve been allowing myself room for ideas to blossom which is partly true but really the biggest obstacle has been time limitations.  I have plenty of new ideas and future post topics are scribbled on notes all over my office but in reality I’ve been buried in work and family obligations and after three years of illustrated posts it’s actually happened – I’ve run out of pictures.  Yikes!

Now that our days are longer and our weather is (a little) drier I have a healthy list of places I want to visit and photograph so things should improve soon but in the interim I hope you enjoy this pretty view of cherry blossoms snapped quickly last night while Finn pulled and tugged on his leash trying to chase every single bird in the neighborhood. 🙂

  1. Good to know you’ve been busy. A lot of time I feel that way too – other things take a hold of me and I’d rather go after them than sit and write. Being on the road each weekend has kept me busy lately… Hopefully you get to visit those places you want to visit as summer heads your way 😊 Finn sounds like the very active kind too. Wonderful shot and very fitting for spring 😊


  2. Those blooms are stunning! I miss cherry blossoms. I miss seasons. And I’ve missed you! Wishing you fewer obligations and many more gorgeous photographs in your (and our) future. Looking forward to seeing them. Hug

    1. Thanks Sally. 😊 I can’t believe I just turned the heat on again, this has been the coldest spring I can remember. Things are looking up though and I’m hoping spring will roll right into a long, pretty summer with plenty of hiking and photography opportunities.
