I find myself thinking small in January. I like to look at tiny details of things, and find that approach spreads to thinking small in everything. No big plans, ambitious new ideas, fantastic dreams or great adventures. Instead there's a kind of contentment - enjoying, treasuring the simple daily things - stacking the wood, stocking the fridge, lighting the lamps and candles, drawing the curtains on the dark nights, placing flowers, making really good food. Reading by the fire. Writing more than painting (the studio is so cold!)
It's all a bit lazy, and before long I will get bored with it, but I've decided just to go with it for now....it's my winter hibernation instincts.
But the days are getting longer....
How do you respond to January?
