I've had a lot of disruption to my routine this month. We got a puppy (who lives freely, entirely to her own clock and the whims of her body) and we took some time off and traveled to see some family. In the past, travel and changes in my routine are pretty hard for me, even if they are for "good" things. The benefits of changing things up are usually a little lost on me. But this time, it felt different. For some reason, or for all the reasons, this trip was easy all the way through.
Creativity is like this too. Sometimes change feels good, and sometimes making a 5 minute ink & watercolor sketch of your coffee mug every morning for 100 days feels good. And amazingly, sometimes something that didn't feel good for a long time suddenly feels great.
