a bucket into her subconscious

So after a 9 box cubbie, a handmade scrapbook, 2 bags, 2 birthday parties, a 5th grade spring musical, 10 hand made cards, 2 shopping trips to Michael's, 2 hand made necklaces, having my car break down and die and having to buy a new one, planting half of the flowers I had planned to, 3 trips to the doctor and plenty of muscle spasms cured by more meds I really don't want to take, painting a super cool castle, a very yummy Easter dinner and lots of time spent with all my guys, 30 hand made wash cloths, 2 scarves, the start of another blanket and 2 more bags... I finally sat down long enough to show off some of the things I've been up to in the last few weeks.

‘In the creative state a man is taken out of himself. He lets down as it were a bucket into his subconscious, and draws up something which is normally beyond his reach. He mixes this thing with his normal experiences and out of the mixture he makes a work of art.’      — E. M. Forster
