this glimpse of the desk where i used to create reminds me that clarity is possible, however fleeting it may seem at times.
i have created in this space for the past 2 years or so. I am so grateful for the light, the space + this beautiful large wooden desk which was here when we arrived.
Sometimes this space was clean and prestine as shown and sometimes it was all over the place. Because when you create there is bound to be mess, and piles, and things in progress.
There was a complete evolution to get to this point (a story i will save for another time). This space was never stagnant.
as this space is deconstructed it feels more chaotic with the drawers emptied + contents on the floor + spread across the desk to be sorted (discarded, passed on, or moved into the bus). I am reminded again of what i carry + why. reminded of my intentions + values as i choose what to keep.
would be lovely to do it all in one swoop, but there are other things that must happen concurrently (including the same process in the other rooms). so i might sort a few things, then read with Z or head to the park. then a bit of time to alter the journal or frame a collage. then off to see J play music. a moment to post a pic here then time to make a meal. then time to measure + sketch the design for the cabinets (on the bus) that will recieve what is kept. then off on other adventures with Z and J.
the fullness of this life!
its amazing what we fit in.
this time of reflection is so valuable because it reminds me that clarity returns.
I wrote these ramblings about a year ago while I was preparing for our move into the bus - our tiny home on wheels. It reminds me of life's cycles. We have lived on the bus for about 9 months now and we are going through another purge and reorganisation. So necessary in a small space. These memories above remind me again that CLARITY RETURNS - no matter how far you may stray or how chaotic things may feel in the moment - take time to reflect on your experiences + relish the good times, the acomplishments - the successes, the fulfilment + you will find yourself back in the FLOW.
