I'm not creating, I'm absorbing.

Sometimes I feel very creative. But not right now, I don't. Right now, and for the past few days, I've felt more like just sitting and enjoying something that someone else has created.

I haven't felt like writing, but I've had a great time reading some of my new books.

I have been absorbing new music at the sixty one, which is a new music social networking game kinda thing. It's great, I love it. If you like playing around with new music, take a look at it, and make friends with me - my name is Susyluwho. Of course. But appreciating new music isn't the same as creating new music.

I haven't felt like painting. I haven't felt like sewing. I haven't even felt much like playing with my camera and photos. I haven't done much of anything. I've been watching a few movies, that was nice. Just absorbing other people's productivity...

I haven't been cooking too much, but I have been eating plenty. I'm cutting back on my food now that I'm back to work -- not too much, though, not enough to actually lose weight. I saw a picture of myself, and I strongly resemble a hobbit. Oh well, I am what I am. I like the idea of second breakfast and elevensies and lunch and afternoon tea and snack and dinner and supper. As long as I don't have hairy feet. (Yes, Lord of the Rings was one of the movies I've watched.)

And right now, I'm in the mood to have a nice cup of tea, and settle back down with my book.

don't think of it as not creating..thinking of it as absorbing and recharging so when you get your next creative burst, you'll have learned and grown more...can't wait for your next creative boost whatever it will be...maybe even a photobook a friend will treasure forever..

I agree with Beth. Absorbing is part of the creating process and life's journey. Whew, that sounds soooo corny, but it's TRUE! Reminds me of that scene in The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton when Johnny and Ponyboy are watching the sunrise, and Johnny says Ponyboy always sees all the beautiful details of life... *sniff*

I feel a bit like I'm hibernating or possibly building a cocoon... I wonder what will hatch? Hopefully whatever it is will be beautiful :)
