In our electronically challenging world where distraction by device is an accepted way of life, how often do we find ourselves in a state of Boketto? In order to arrive at this lovely state, we have to have:
- a little bit of free time
- a location away from (or the discipline to avoid) electronic gadgets
- (our own) permission not to fill that time with something that needs to be done
Later, when I went to the studio to begin the painting, I put on some rhythmic music and started to lay colors on the canvas. Before I knew it, I was swaying back and forth and then dancing around the studio. When it was time to return to the everyday tasks that needed to be done, I realized that I was just plain HAPPY!
Maybe we could all use a little Boketto (and a little bit of art) in every single day.
