How are you?
OH my goodness.... the need for a digital break, hit me like a brick this weekend! I mean BOOM!!
Wow.... I had no choice but to just walk away from the studio... take deep breaths, soak up some silence....and under-stimulate my senses.
It's been awhile since my last digital break - the one that lead me to a temporary addiction to watching reruns of Mary Tyler Moore. :) It was time for another.
The difference this time was a lot of simple silence was involved.... Just time to sit and reflect and be alone with my thoughts. It was REFRESHING.
I have to say, I adore the quiet. I think best, create best, do best, when I surround myself in oodles of quiet. I long for it, I need it!! I cherish it!
I love being with just me I honestly do. The more time I spend with myself (and Ben), the more I need. I'm a self-professed loner! I make no apologies for it! It's just who I am. I love the quiet of my own thoughts.
Anyone with me on this? I can't be the only loner! 'sigh'
I honestly believe silence allows me to dig deeper into the artist inside me...the creativity flows freer... The thoughts and ideas come easier!
I know, not everyone feels this way. Many of us love lots of interaction, conversation, stimulation...
If that is you.... can I give you a little tiny nudge....consider test driving just a little 'silence' each day. You may be surprised what it does for you! In exchange, I will do my best to fit in a little more social time (now and then)......
In honor of silence.... I created a lovely texture for you all... I call it Silence. :) Check it out!!
I used it on each of today's images. It's one of those textures that just seems to work... on pretty much anything it lands on.
I hope you like it. :) Texture Lovin' Listers, it's on it's way.... Not on my list ... feel free to sign up HERE...and start getting freebies almost instantly.
