Monday

Pedaled my bike 10 miles to work in the dark, with my blinking lights as I do every morning, I then went through my day of teaching and made the 10 mile bike ride back home. I was so excited to sit down behind my loom, drink my hot teal, pop in a DVD and do some weaving. I was only allowing myself to weave until 6:00 as the dog still needed to be cared for, and there was a long list of reading waiting to be completed for my grad class. At 7:00 I sat down to read, this did not go nearly as well as the weaving, as I was attempting to read about creativity I could not get my brain to stop thinking about new weaving creations. I read for an hour, I have no clue what I read, instead I have several new color combinations determined, a project to use my scrap yarn, and several new photography projects to teach my students, so while it seems to have been a productive hour, I need to begin reading all over again, hopefully with less thoughts about my own creations and more focus on what creativity is and the idea behind it.

You weave on a loom? I think that is so cool!

You weave on a loom AND bike 10 miles each way to work and back...very impressive. I'm following you now!

I do weave on a loom, I got into it when I was in college and when my husband and I bought our home and I finally had room I went searching for a loom. I love it!

Thanks Annette, I'm following you now.

My husband got me into cycling, he road his bike across the US.

But you're not weaving while you're riding a bike, right? Lol

Reading and not actually reading especially tends to happen when reading text books, don't it!

I love and hate that passionate desire to create when one should be doing other things.

It is quiet a paradox, as I must read about creativity, while wishing I was creating.
