Time to Create

I'm having so much FUN reading about the psychology of time and the different ways artist make time to create. I highly recommend the book, Daily Rituals by Mason Currey. Currey attempts to answer the question, How do you do meaningful creative work while also earning a living? Currey makes this effort by sharing the creative process of over 150 Artists, Philosophers, Writers, Filmmakers, Musicians and more. For me Time is the great equalizer because we are all given the same 24 hours a day. I am also intrigued by and believe in the simultaneity of time. Author, Patrick Tilly, said it best when he described time like the pages of the book. All the pages that precede the one you are reading and all the pages to follow coexist. In this brief description Tilly is saying that past lives exist simultaneously and that life after life is here now not just in the future. Still you can only read the page you are on.

What do you do with the time that you have?

Is there ever enough time for your creative pursuits?

It's Sunday morning and I've just about run out of time. I've got to get ready to go to my portrait drawing group. I refer to my Sunday mornings with the Portland Portrait Drawing Society as ARTChurch.
