be creative

I am taking a couple days off from the normal hectic pace of life to slow down and notice what is around me. My daughter is getting married in twelve days and it has been a whirlwind of lists, errands to run and every day chores to still get too. It is an exciting time for me. She is my oldest and I am excited for her and her new adventure in marraige. They are so perfect for each other I couldn't have picked a better guy for her!
So back to relaxation. We took off for the nearby mountains of beautiful Park City and I am reading, sleeping and doing Yoga to de -stress. I also brought my sketch book to doodle in. The sun is outside just rising up from the mountains, my favorite scene in the morning. Sunshine makes me happy. I can't think of a better medicine to get in a great mood. As I take Flora's class I realize how unrelaxed I have become. It is hard to go and play, to sleep at night like I used too and just take it easy!
I know that is why I love to draw and paint as much as I do-it is like an alter personality for me to be whimsical, fun, colorful, vibrant and no boundaries. I LOVE it. I am usually a very organised, planned out kind of person but in my creative process I throw that all out and try to let go.
Am I the only split personality out there?
