On Saturday Steve and I spent the day getting errands done and even had the great pleasure of going to lunch together. It's been so long since he's had any kind of "free" time that we've been able to spend just hanging around together.
On Sunday, Steve worked on contracts and I got busy organizing my studio. I'd received so many new items within the past few months and I hadn't taken the time to arrange things so they made sense. Stuff just kind of got crammed wherever it would (barely) fit, and I was getting to the frustration breaking point. I'm not the most organized person in the world, but I can't stand not knowing where stuff is, much less what I have.
Yesterday I played in my newly reorganized studio while Steve did more contract work. Then we shared a dinner of popcorn while watching a movie.
It was what many would consider a boring holiday weekend. To me, it was perfect. Because it was exactly what I needed. I learned something from it.
I learned that it is imperative that I take time out to simply be. To stop, breathe, and... unfocus. It felt like when you stare off into the distance long enough that your vision goes blurry. When you bring your eyes back into focus, it seems like everything is sharper than it was before. It makes you appreciate clarity.
