Crafting Time

Crafting Time

paintmojo165-1

I like to break life up into time chunks.  I suppose all of humanity does that.  We measure it in minutes, days, weeks, months, seasons, years, etc.  As a creative, I use these time bits as a medium for crafting life.  The year begins and I am thinking back on what I loved, what I want to improve, and how to make the year to come fit the dreams I have for myself.  Each night, I envision the day to come, working through the rough places to help me think through what might be a tripping spot.

Mondays are my days for Weekly Wishes, that place where I decide general themes for the week, where I will put my energy, and what the landscape of the next 7 days will be.  I use various tools to plan it out.  Sometimes there are lists made on Sunday night.  My calendar holds the appointments with hints of what is flexible enough to allow for extras.  Some appointments are in stone, others are penciled in.  Some weeks feel monumental, while others are transitional weeks that help me recover from or prepare for the more intense parts.

Three Big Projects

The week in front of me is going to be about balancing care of myself while giving attention to others.  I am starting a new half-day camp that blends drama and art.  I am the drama teacher.  We are focusing on improvisation and experimental movement.  Drama, Drama, Drama! Can you say FUN?!

Summer Solstice is this weekend.  I have signed up for Galia Alena’s Summer Solstice Sacred Vessel Journaling Ritual. I am teaching Angels In My Studio with her and can’t wait for a first hand glimpse into her teaching style.  I discovered her at the beginning of the year when we were both choosing our One Little Word for the year. (Mine was Gift and hers, Generosity.)  Celebrating the seasons is a great way to craft life with time as a medium.

I am also gearing up for a large mediation gathering that will take place this weekend. I will be on the team working with newcomers. We will be drinking ceremonial cacao. Some of my attention will be going to getting my head and heart in the right space for giving during the event.

As for the Self-care

In between commitments to others, I am continuing to support my healing knee.  I find long soaks in the tub to be the best medicine so far.  I am also playing house, getting my studio in shape and organizing a space that I hope will be just right for shooting more videos.  I have also been doing a lot of drawing and want to continue exploring some of the work I am doing there.

Brilliant Idea….How about I share my Summer Solstice Journal next week in a video?!  Score!

How About You?

What tricks do you have for crafting time?  What wishes have you cast for the weeks  or seasons to come?  Where are you working on balance in your life?  Do you have any Summer Solstice plans? I would love to know.
