I cleaned up my studio yesterday and hung this little print from the Get To Work Book. It is such a good reminder. I'm getting better at understanding and dealing with the ebb and flow of the creative process. It got me thinking about all the other ebbs and flows though.
There's ebb and flow to my time and within my schedule. Right now my time is short as we soak up the last bits of summer vacation. That'll soon change. My kids will start school and I'll have a somewhat regular work schedule.
There's ebb and flow to my writing and my blog posts. There's ebb and flow with ideas and with energy. And the interesting thing is that not everything ebbs or flows at the same time. Right now my ideas are really flowing but my time and often my energy are ebbing.
I could be frustrated by it all but I'm getting better at accepting it. It is what it is. (My brother's favorite saying.) Respect the ebb, respect the flow, and know that neither lasts.
