Purple Haze

photoStop measuring days by degree of productivity and start experiencing them by degree of presence.  Alan Watts (via Maria Popova in Brainpickings)

Having been rather struck by this, why do I catch myself reciting lists of things done and not done?
Partly it is because I am getting ready to head off again. It’s slightly longer trip than usual as Kopila and I are going to the Eurosynergy Conference in Malta. And a 30th wedding anniversary. I hadphoto long promised my husband we’d be in the same country for that. We just had to be flexible about which country!

I am in the midst of a purple patch as we work out colour combinations for a project I am not at liberty to speak of freely but it is Samunnat related!  And, appropriately, I did play Jimi Hendrix’s photoPurple Haze and Prince’s Purple Rain! As I trialled colour combinations I meandered back into icon and bangle territory-combining Samunnat design work with class preparation and random creative distractibility.  I’m calling it multi focussed rather than scatty!  Purple productivity AND purple presence.

PS Note the natty toilet roll cooking rack (patent pending) which gave the beads above a really good curve. You can’t really see it in the photo but it’s there making it sit well!

    Love the tip on using the TP roll to bake on to create a gentle curve. Beautiful pieces Wendy! Can’t wait to hear about the new project! Congrats on your 30th wedding anniversary! And the quote…..oh my – it was perfect! I needed that connection. The simple reminder to stop measuring days by the degree of productivity; purple presence indeed. Thank you.

      Don’t we need reminding about presence Marlene! And re that TP roll thing, wouldn’t it be fun to make some that curl upwards. I can see women like us wearing something like that! I guess you’d have to be more thoughtful about wear you put the holes. Not like I am not always thoughtful or anything….
