I sat looking at the blank computer screen waiting for something creative to come to mind. Sometimes it works when my creative muse takes over and I get an idea as soon as I sit down to work.
You may be saying to yourself, “What? She doesn’t have her articles written weeks in advance?” Sorry, I don’t. I might occasionally have one or two articles written ahead of time, but that’s about it.
You may remember that I am in the process of helping my husband remodel a house. We are very close to having the house finished enough to move in. But, not quite. Lately the process seems to have slowed, at least to me. There are so many details to take care of, decisions to make, errands to run, counter tops to tile, walls to paint, boxes to move, plumbing to hook up, towel racks to hang, etc.
My husband, Butch, has been killing himself to get us moved in to this house as soon as possible. By four or five in the afternoon he has worked a nine hour day and rarely stops for a break. He is truly a hard worker. He can work me into the ground. I wimp out quickly.
What amazes me about my husband is that he can have so many projects going at once with none of them finished. I don’t know how he does it. He must have a creative muse also. His creative muse just carries a hammer, nails, drill, skill saw, and tile cutter instead of typical artist supplies. (I’ll have to tell you later about some cool projects Butch has done for people with sheetrock mud.)
Creativity comes in many forms as well as creative muses. It’s that simple.
Hurray! Today, let’s appreciate creativity and the different ways creative muses appear! While I’m being appreciative, I want to let my husband know how much I appreciate him for all his hard work, vision, energy, and patience throughout this project. Thank you, Butch! You are a sweetheart!
