254 I felt Autumn this morning,
it was only a gentle whisper,
but it made me pause,
and think "oh, she's almost here."
I am ready for the cooler days,
the deeper shadows,
and the prettiest of light.
I'm in love with all the seasons, but my favourite is this one.

a packet of straws helped me find focus when freelensing,
I was in all sorts of pain trying to create work that looked like I knew what I was doing,
I was creating art by mistakes,
and not being able to re-create it the next time.
I was using moving targets,
kids who would lose patience with my need to practise,
over and over again,
so I found a packet of red and white paper straws,
they were pretty and compliant.
And as the subject matter
didnt matter,
and I wasn't trying to make art,
I was doing it for me,
I found my focus.
And now when I feel my art getting in the way of my voice,
I grab a packet of straws.
I slowdown.
I give myself space.
I find my why again.
Find your packet of straws and a quiet place to play.
And you'll find your why!
