Today's choice from Bruce Mau's Incomplete Manifesto of Growth:

8. Drift.
Allow yourself to wander aimlessly. Explore adjacencies. Lack judgment. Postpone criticism.

Since returning from the PMC Guild Conference, I have a bit of ennui. I'm distracted. I want to redo the studio. I have to plan homeschool chemistry and calculus courses. I need to turn on the glass torch and begin the practicing that will get me back to making beads. I must go finish my physical therapy, and find a gym to replace it.  I get sidetracked into restarting old projects, such as the carved wooden mirror that I'm repainting, or the lampshades I keep intending to paint with my bird scenes. 

Ah, it must be that fallow time when new work is percolating deep down beneath the surface, unseen. What will come when it bursts through to the surface? More waiting to see.
