learning...even on my worst days
If there is one thing I have learned so far from this blogging experience it is that creativity doesn't come in equal doses. There are days when I can just draw and draw and I want to make everything beautiful. Those are great days. Then there are days like yesterday and today when I want to pick up my pen and sketch away, but I just can't. It's as if I am paralyzed. It's not really that I am any more busy...I'm busy most days...its just that the stress of everyday life becomes too overwhelming. When this is the case, the creative muscles in my body shut down...completely. This drawing was all that I could produce today. Sad as it is, I worked on it much longer than I do most drawings. To me it is very unsuccessful and shows no inspiration, but I am sharing it nonetheless because it is a learning experience. I wonder if mathematicians have then same problems as us creatives? Probably not...but I sure would hate to be the one solving quadratic equations when I could be drawing them instead.
