Cows feeding with one curious one looking at me…

It is very fortunate that there are so many great subjects to photograph nearby. We only drove a few miles to get these pictures.

I am grateful:

1.   It did not rain today.
2.   I chose to stay home from the camera club workshop today.
3.   I was able to get some extra sleep.
4.   I have plenty of clothes.
5.   My scanner works well.

I hope you have had a relaxing Sunday, and that you take a few moments to do something creative.

Always,
Jo Ann

    Love the pics. JoAnn, I think that disconnected feeling may come because when you create, you use a different part of the brain than your ordinary thinking mind. At least that’s my theory, anyway. Sometimes, when I am creating, I feel like I am trying to make a silk purse from a sow’s ear. I fiddle and fiddle and work with it and then finally it becomes something I like. And I’m always surprised!

    Glad you liked the pictures Anita.

    I am not sure I was clear about what I meant about the disconnect. It happens weeks, months, years after I have created something. When I encounter my work again, I feel like I am looking at something new. I know I created it, but I do not always recall it. Often I am amazed by what I accomplished.

    You may be right about the use of another part of the brain being the cause. I think my memory may be flawed as well, there is residual damage because of blocking out parts of my life.

    It is interesting how we relate to our creations.

    Hi JoAnn, I love how you posted 5 things you are grateful for at the end of this post. Keep creating! As you mentioned in your journal entry “To create, one must believe in the work and the ability to complete it.” Thanks for sharing this post 🙂

      Thank you Maryanne. I have been doing the thankful list daily for a few weeks. I started reading Simple Abundance and it is one of the things it suggests. I used to do it anyway, but had fallen out of the habit for some time. I was trying to do a weekly thankful list, but sometimes missed it. I find that listing my gratitude brings my awareness to how fortunate I am and increases my happiness.

      I am working at keeping the creativity flowing. Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my entry. It makes it much more rewarding when I know someone is reading what I write.

      You take care, and blessings to you.
