I am hanging onto my word, searching the shape and sound of the letters to strengthen my energy and creativity. It’s tough work being Fierce.
Last week we had a lot of snow which is not typical for us on Vancouver Island. It lasted for a few days and made a lot of people stay home. To accompany the weather I experienced “brain freeze”.
Often bad weather gets me in a creative productive mode but this time I was distracted. I watched the weather change the sky constantly as squalls swept down on us. I photographed the snow disguising our yard. I ate things like soup and veggie stew and bread. I went deep into myself and instead of finding inspiration I seemed to go into some weird kind of semi-hibernation mode. Very little creative action occurred. I got a little worried, then upset. and then I realized it was more likely a small time out. I needed a break, a time to gather information and inspiration. It was nothing permanent, nothing defective. Sometimes being Fierce is to be quiet, listening and observing. Sometimes it means to pause.
