Yesterday was one of those days in which one has boundless creativity and random, unexplained bursts of euphoria. Don't you love those days? It was beautiful outside, too. After a nice walk with some friends, Beatrice settled for a long afternoon nap. I opened the window in the bedroom and poured boxes and boxes of fabric onto the bed. Then, I made myself a little nest in the mountain and got to work with my scissors and pincushion and needles. While I worked I watched Science of Sleep. It is a story of rejection, but it is still quite lovely and really captures the way dreams feel.
Do you like to have a movie play sometimes when you make things? I can become very distracted , so a movie blocks out all the other noises and I just listen rather than watch. Sometimes I would look up and catch part of a scene, too. But I realized there were whole sections I completely missed!
