Just pick up a pencil

Spoke to R this morning about balance.
More specifically, where the balancing point is between intellect and emotion.

I can tell you right now that my intellect is so not dominant.
Not at all, at all.
I’m super emotion dominant. If you knew me you’d probably say that’s too true.
That’s why I experience such a shift in mood so quickly. I can feel myself folding up emotionally, like one of those 18thC nautical telescopes, folding up into myself even if my intellect is yelling at me to cut that out right now.

R said that in creating is where I find the balance point.
He said that when I make something, I’m finding the balance point because neither side has a chance to be dominant.
My intellect tell me which paintbrush to use, which angle to photograph from, while emotionally I’m wondering how will one swipe of the brush affect another or how can I express what I feel thru the photo.
So in my worst mood possible it’s best for me to grab a pencil, or a camera, or a brush.

R is someone who makes such incredible sense; the one you want to talk to all the time.

    It’s wonderful to be able to channel energies into creativity – and even better that you have someone to encourage your process!
    By the way, I love the photos for this post. It looks to me like the rock (last photo) in the middle on the right is kissing the large one in the middle of the picture!
