I found another area to research, so looks like more reading. Coffee at the ready! A cozy sweater. I am good! I cleared the kitchen last night____Ya I am good!
The area of interest is the subconscious. Now to see how it works, and if it has anything to do with the creative process. From what little I know I am pretty sure it will turn out to have a link. With Shibui you work with the imagination, your painting with a base of wet medium, and using pastel pencils to create what the mind visualizes. It is up to me to prove this connection. I wagger that there is one as to creating art is certainly a thinking process, and the mind uses what it files away. There is the conscious mind, and then the subconscious mind, working below what is conscious. So what do we know about it? We know we can change up what we think about, and that has to impact creativity as well as how we live life. We just don’t think in terms of changing things up often enough. Instead, we rehash things until we finally get tired of them. A new life is right there!
“Sunday is Sunday! All Day long!” The older folk would say this. I would think, “Yes! And?” I think because it was said with what could be satisfaction in the tone of voice, or it could be said as “Oh! G It’s Sunday.” That inflection mattered. Either way, it marked a pivotal day. Tomorrow’s always coming. Monday has more tones of dread attached. Friday is quite a different feel! I have had the luxury mostly not to overthink what day it is unless I had an appointment. These days it feels like time goes too fast. But here is a thought, something I heard. The reason why time seems to go fast is that we are so very familiar with what we do. So what if we change what we do?
It seems this comes from some mode of thinking. A happy mode. Have a great day! Best wishes! Pejj
