In my part of the world rain has washed away haze and heat, and the weather has begun to feel like autumn. It makes me pause and sniff the air-so to speak. My mind wanders and in it pictures of random things and events appear. I feel the temporariness of everything and I wonder why I am here. Not just in this room, (which happens often enough, lol!), but in general. The pictures continue to appear as in a carrousel, but they morph into different pictures. Do you have these moments?
You may be wondering about my mental health, but I am not losing my mind. In fact, this has always been the case for me. I am a daydreamer. I can’t explain what provokes a daydreaming episode. I may be looking at my plants and then I’m somewhere else. It’s a little bit like floating. I’ve come to think of this as a coping skill for the overwhelm of everyday’s multi-leveled uncertainties. It happens quite naturally, like a circuit breaker during a power surge. What is interesting is that after such a reverie I can often see more clearly, like a blurry picture that snaps into focus, and I can then deal with the task at hand.
I make many of my designs after a mind roaming. A trusted source has encouraged me to include a portfolio tab on my site—just so everyone can see the other things I get to make, and show you where my mind has been;-)
That is to come, so…to be continued.
