Colouring books for adults – has it caught on where you are? Here in Norway it has become quite a trend, and I recently bought my first book and set of felt-tip pens.
Baby is now eight months old and sleeping less than ever, or so it feels like. Maybe it’s the accumulated sleep deprivation catching up with me. My creativity and photo mojo, unsurprisingly, has been running low, but I can feel things stirring again, just a little, through this simple children’s pastime (and isn’t that appropriate!).
There is meditation; thoughts flow freely as I focus on staying inside the lines. And there is learning to be had, in studying shapes and colours – why do I enjoy colouring the spiralling curve of the flower stalk more than the blocky shape of the pots, and which colours do I want next to each other and why?
The main lesson here is this: creativity is found in the rarest of places and when you least expect it. Where have you found your creative mojo lately? Tell us in the comments!
