Every few days, my daughter’s playroom “explodes,” as we say. And as much as I try to encourage, plead, and threaten her to put one toy away before taking another one out, her room remains a disaster zone until I take the time to organize it again.
I admit it – I am a bit of a neat freak. Everything has it’s place. And I love empty, open, horizontal space. It frees me to think and imagine.
But I am trying to be more open to the chaos. So my creative project for this week has been to make something of the mess. I started by taking a few pictures and then using the computer to process them into something else. I kind of like the end result.
Maybe mess CAN be inspiring.
