quite possibly impossible


my right brain is apparently at the wheel this week. scattered around the house are scores of unfinished letters, heaps of yarn and fiber, an abandoned spreadsheet, unsorted papers, a half-spray-painted ottoman, and scraps of lumber that had once had a purpose but no longer. scattered around my brain are incomplete sentences, circular references, and languages i don't understand. in the middle of this i have an irrepressible urge to start painting garbage cans. but i see the left brain out of the corner of my eye, with one hand on her hips and the other wagging a finger at me. it appears she's poised to take the reins next week and make me accomplish something. i hope so. both sides may have their quirks, but i couldn't live without either of them.

Sounds like my house! Scoot that left brain out the door on vacation for a while... Then nothing will be impossible!

Oh, wavelength thing going on...maybe it's the spring-fever. If only the spring fever would cause the spring cleaning.

AAyeee!!

Wise words and observations Aimee! I hope they manage to soon coexist in harmony again, haha! This is a fantastic, layered piece you did here too by the way. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Oh my goodness. Self-discipline. I'm still hoping I'll achieve it one day. I have two warring sides of my brain, too. But I call them Laziness vs. Guilt. Laziness wins 80% of the time. You should SEE that state of my house right now. Ick!

You can't have a whole without parts, right? It'll come together...

So that's why I am getting behind on things...hemispheric miscommunication. :)

Aris said...

clarity always seems to come from chaos. It is always in the midst of a mess of unsuccessful starts or seemingly "unfruitful) whims that beauty and truth emerge!!!!
So Aimee watch out!!!

Ces said...

I love the brilliant vivid colors, and the message. Very creative. Nice textures too.

Your brain sounds quite a bit like mine, and the description of your half-done projects is very, very familiar to me! But oh, the results of your creative right-brain is so beautiful!

Fantastic, love the wording and the little pegs too. My brain is just one big mash of scrambled eggs most of the time. You have still created even though your left brain has taken over.
