This day 6 post is a little more light-hearted than previous posts. I was going to post it about a month ago, but thought it might be a good example of a little amount of rogue creativity. It’s not a great piece of art, but it’s an outward example of an inward itchiness I felt to think outside the box. Sure, this may be minuscule in the grand scheme of life’s contemplations, but it satisfied a small thirst for creativity in a routine season.
I don’t know what came over me, but I had the itch to make…make something. Anything. I felt like my days were changing diapers, rocking, feeding, talking to babies, and when they were asleep I was so tired that all I wanted to do was shut my eyes and kiss my pillow for 12 hours. I hadn’t been creative in months.
Then, in a sudden burst of nap time miraclery, the energy came over me – “this is the time to make something!” The thought of a necklace came to my mind. I hadn’t been to a craft store for supplies so I was forced to use what was on hand. A small example of our limitations pushing us into out-of-the-box thinking (read about that in Day 5). I had this cute string I got for the kids’ gotcha party and some felt balls that had fallen off a clutch that was given to me.
So I gathered my rogue supplies and I created out of my limitations…
A small project that seems trite in comparison with major issues in this world and in our lives. But for a moment, when I had the energy and a moment to come up for creative air, my limitations made me think rogue in a small way. And I think the result it pretty cute.
