A Little Time To Play...

Meet Andrew and Piper...my precious kiddos. They amaze and inspire me every single day. I was able to capture a few photos of them playing yesterday in the leaves that our oak tree is dropping. It really was amazing. They can be so carefree—just look at the spark in their eyes! This is exactly what life is all about. They're not doing anything other than playing and simply being alive and it's the most wonderful thing in the world. So, I had a little epiphany. Well, maybe not quite an epiphany since that suggests that the thought had never occurred to me before...let's just say I had a reminder. The reminder was how important a little down-time really is. I'm a very goal-oriented person, and once I get something achieved I rarely stop to rest and re-fuel my creative energies. I'm off planning or working on my next project. Something I know, and often forget, is that playing, relaxing, frolicking...whatever you wish to call it is GOOD for you. And, it's good for productivity and creativity. I promise you that when you go back to your work, especially art and design work, you will be refreshed and often have a new perspective that is better than what you had before. So, I challenge you (and me) to take some time to just be in the moment and play for awhile!
