Playing Hookey


I confess it, I played hookey today! Instead of working on art, I went skiing. Sometimes, things such as this must be done—a weekday free of office job obligations must be used to take advantage of special lift ticket deals.

I haven’t been skiing in over 10 years, so I was happy to see that my body hadn’t forgotten how to do it!

In fact, this was a harder decision to make than you might think—as I keep saying every Thursday, I covet my one day per week to focus solely on art. But Mike and I had nothing but sunshine out on the slopes, so it seems the playing hookey gods were smiling down on us.

Perhaps, I could also say, I was “filling the well” as Julia Cameron calls the time we spend filling ourselves up away from our art, and in a sense harvesting good things to put back into our art. But really, it was just plain fun, and I’m thankful for it.

Now, I command you (or encourage you kindly) to go forth and play hookey!

I will be back this weekend with some more art! Thank you for your kind comments about my post below!
