It's just before 8 am on a Saturday morning and I chose to not sleep in. I have plenty to do but nothing really I have to do. No deadlines, no ongoing projects. I will probably straighten up my studio to make it more tolerable to work in. I am at peace this morning with, for want of a better term, doing nothing.
And I am waking up to strong coffee and a jazz playlist. I like to wake slowly on my days off from The Job. Sometimes I like to wake up to Classical music but I usually reserve that when for reading. This morning, this playlist is suitable for a slow waking.
So, once again, it's hermit time, at least for the morning. I am venturing out later to an illustrators meetup. Usually I dread social events but today, I am actually excited. Usually, hermit time means just that. All weekend I don't venture out. I am also at peace with that.
And it's a beautiful day. Summer is coming to an eventual close. Autumn is my favorite time of year. My creativity increases, I get more reading in. The temperature lends itself to both. The air seems to conduct creative energy and it all just pours in. Although I mentioned that I have no deadlines to speak of, I still have plenty to do. Mostly self-generated projects. I am doing The Postcard Project, drawing random and assorted postcards that I am offering up on my Ko-Fi page. You can read more about the project by clicking on the Postcard Project link.
And what is Ko-Fi? It's where people can go to buy an artist/creator a virtual coffee for $3 as a way of supporting their art. Think of it as a tip jar for an artist. With my ko-fi page, the more coffees you buy me, the more of my art I send you. For instance, 2 coffees gets you a hand drawn postcard, delivered right to your door.
I hope everyone has the day they are wishing for. I have some reading to catch up on...
