I’ve been trying to decide on a new look for the blog for a week. I uploaded a header picture, but I didn’t know if I liked it or not. I looked at several WordPress themes. None of them really suited. I ended up with this really plain white look with a bigger font. My custom header disappeared, and these books (see above) mysteriously emerged. But, I’m still not sure.
Anything creative is more about making decisions than anything else. Last week, Cherry entered a photo in an art contest. Just filling in the blanks on the entry form required choices.
“What do you want to say about this?”
“I don’t know, Mom. I just took the picture.”
“How did it make you feel?”
The question triggered a stream of imagery. She is more articulate than I was at ten. The instincts are there, but selective consciousness is developed.
