Painting From My Heart
When I was in college I wanted to paint. To express that which I could not put into words by creating art. There were pictures in my mind, and I thought I could create them on the canvas. I never did.
Later in my life, I started creating with a wood lathe – turning bowls and vessels. It was a way to create – to express myself. I’m not sure what they say, but I know when I’m turning, I’m giving voice to something deep inside that wants to express.
I also feel close to my Grandpa Stone. I share his first name and his love for woodworking. He was a woodworker and turner in retirement until his death in September of 1999.
I haven’t turned my lathe on in a long while. I’m feeling called back to my lathe over the last several months. To pursue creativity for its own sake. No one else to serve but me.
Do you have a hobby that allows you to create freely – and just for you? Have you given yourself permission to spend some time there recently?
If you haven’t please consider this a note from your higher self saying “It’s time!” I’m going to do the same. It’s time to create just for the sake of playing and having fun.
That’s it for this week…From My Heart.
