Butterfly Sunrises

I used to spend more time just making stuff. Putting ideas together, committing them to canvas. I thought it was time wasted. It wasn’t. I did this one for my mom.

Like words, visual ideas atrophy without use. If you find writing a centering activity, jot down some lines. Pick up your pencil and just doodle. Or play a tune.

Instead of checking your email, just once today commit any creative idea to paper.


I used to spend more time making stuff. Just following an idea; putting it together in my mind and into my canvas. Creativity is hugely important to me. I love the action; I enjoy the flow state it induces, the mindfulness that usually comes with how things are put together. Also the metaphors we spin while creating. My wish for folks this day was to just engage in the act of creating.
