They say variety is the spice of life. Maybe that’s why I can’t stick with any one thing for very long. You know what though? I don’t really want to. There is joy in the doing, the learning, and the failures. I putter with a little of this and a little of that, sometimes I succeed, sometimes I fail miserably. There is no pressure, and no goal beyond the experience. Puttering is my Zen.
If someone asks what I’m doing and I say, “Oh, just puttering around the house”, or “puttering with crafty things”, than means I’m in my happy place. I don’t have to answer to anyone, I don’t have any deadlines, and I’m doing what I want at my own pace.
