...time and motivation to create...with paint, with words, with a camera, with pencils, with whatever. Creating something is like travelling down a winding path, deep in the woods, simply experiencing what's just around the corner.
...connections...with my husband, my children, my friends, with people known for many years, with new someones stepping into my life.
...anticipation...for what comes next, for who is to come, for what is just a few steps away, for what will take a long journey to reach.
...sights...images to plainly see, pictures to see by looking closer, the grand vista, the ittiest bittiest detail, what sights my eyes survey everyday, the images I'm lucky enough to glimpse when looking from another angle.
...imagination...to capture me and carry me off, to inspire me to create, to remind me to connect in new ways, to spark my anticipation, to cast new shadows and light to every sight waiting to be seen.
Sure, there are specifics like painting with my daughter, music to write with, country drives both solo and with my kidlets, but specifics change as I change. And thinking through this simple little question, these broad categories are what hold me, in the past, in the present, and hopefully in my future as well.
What things do you need to just be enough?
