Perhaps I should have done this game in two week increments! The weeks have just been flying by lately! This week was sidelined by colds. Even my Sweetie stayed home from work for a couple of days so all of our creative time was spent keeping little J distracted. By the end of the week we were gifted with better health and the stellar weather California is known for and we were not going to waste it!
We spent yesterday walking through a street art fair which was very fun and creative! It always involves quite a bit of wrangling, on the order of herding cats when walking through something like that with the girl. Why is it that the most fragile things always lure the most? I was fascinated to find that J was as mesmerized as her mother by the glass art marbles. I have ALWAYS loved them and have owned a couple of fine specimens so it was really fun watching J stare, ooh and ahh her way through the beautiful balls. I did have to head off a few attempted "bounces" but we managed to walk away with out causing any damage!
Today was spent Birthday Partying (J's oldest friend "Lil-lil-ya" also turned three!) and generally enjoying some sick free family time. I bother to tell you all this as the prelude to my less then stellar creativity score. I think I did exercise some good creativity in the child distraction and craft department, [I maxed out my photo card so I am unable to share a picture of the beautiful bird mobile today but I will update with that photo later next week.] but I did not do anything personally creative. I read no further in "The Creativity Book: A Year's Worth of Inspiration and Guidance" by Eric Maisel. I did ponder my lack of creativity with every cup of coffee since reading this week's Cafe' Creative Prompt. I kept thinking something, SOMETHING would come to me, but nothing particularly inspirational did.
All in all I will score myself a 5 out of 10 and three bliss boosts. I had fun and bliss was found. I realize that creativity is not just found in art but this time around I had intended concentrating on my art expressions so this is why I feel like it wasn't as stellar as previous creativity weeks even if I have scored myself about the same. Perhaps this means I am raising the bar on my expectations... a double edged sword perhaps but as I close out the week I am making it mean that I am creating some high caliber bliss over in my world and that certainly makes it all worthwhile!
How about you? What kind of bliss are you creating in your life?
