Ouch. Corny. But I figured I'd better post before the month gets away from me. No pictures tonight - just words. Saturday morning at the crack of dawn I head for the airport and go to Whidbey Island, WA to teach a five-day surface design workshop. I'm excited -- and I expect that I will learn as much as I teach. My crit group met today and we discussed, among other things, the push-pull of family and studio; of needing to create and having life events that we can't control interfere with our creativity. Health, aging parents, kids, spouses, financial issues - there is no end to interruptions. Should we fight it or go with the flow? Shrug our shoulders and figure we'll get back to the studio when life lets us? Or gnash our teeth and go, kicking and screaming, to try and create? There's no right answer -- but what do you think?? How do you handle the vicissitudes?
