Spread #126- Own Art March 26, 2011Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
People ask me: “Do you have enough time to do your own art?”, “Do you do other art other than journaling?” My son asks me: “What do you enjoy more, teaching or journaling?”…I don’t know the answers to these questions. These distinctions are useless for me. I don’t think about them. Anything I do at the moment is what I prefer to do now. Anything that engages me emotionally, I have time to do. I enjoy anything that makes me feel me, lively, deeply, richly connected to my core self, and in tune with others’ heart beats. I’d do anything that gives me a sense of the miraculous, anything that supports vigor in me, these undefinable things that are beyond thoughts. That ‘anything’ can be as basic as smearing paint on a surface, as rewarding as helping individuals get closer to recognizing their own creative beat, and as simple as cracking up with laughter with my kids in the car while driving them home from school. That’s right. All is my own.
