Okay, let's start with true confessions: I have a short attention span. I mean, REALLY short! They say that the sign of a creative mind is several unfinished projects lying around, and I'm going to go with that thought. I'd hate to think that it's just because I'm...hmm, what's the word...can't come up with a term, but it relates to failure-to-follow through. Nah - I'll go with creative. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Having said that, I'll also say this: Maybe it's not so much a creative thing as it is a level of interest thing. There are so many things out there that interest me, and I feel like I have to at least TRY them all (or as many as possible)! Then, sometimes I lose interest along the way and move on to the next thing. We can't love everything all the time, can we?
Ultimately my point is this: Life is way too short to waste my time with things that don't interest me, even if once upon a time they did. If I lose interest, rather than flog a dead horse, I merely move on to the next point of interest. Hey - a weird analogy just popped into my head! Let's say that you're on a sightseeing trip across America (you can see where this is going, can't you?) You wouldn't just stand and stare at Old Faithful for the whole trip - you'd get back in your car and head out to the Grand Canyon and over to Venice Beach to see the freaks and up to San Francisco to Fisherman's Wharf and all the rest of it! Similarly, I'm a firm believer in pursuing your interests, but when interest wanes, move on... There's a BILLION things out there (and no, I don't think I'm exaggerating) to see and do and try!
So, that's the rest of my little introduction. Not that you cared so much, but introductions are a good thing, I think - makes it friendlier. What I'll post on here is whatever enters my head and/or whatever I create with my hands or whatever wonderful things that I come across to share. As with other areas of my life, it could be a daily thing, or a weekly thing, or some of each. Depends on what life presents me with that particular day. Speaking of presents, this is one of my favorite quotes:
"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift - that's why we call it the present." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
That is my gift today - a nudge to you to go and do something with your ever-new, ever-PRESENT! I'm off to do the same!
