Art Every Day - Day 16 my day 10
I get homesick this time year. Well, not necessarily during this month because in Wisconsin it is cold now but if I could time travel I would go back to the first and second week of October. See Autumn unfolds in the city much later than back home but it reminds me of home every year. I long for the smell of Fall. Hot apple cider, the smell of the earth as it starts to settle in for winter, long walks in the woods, the beauty of Rockbridge (a small area north of my hometown), the Wisconsin River Valley, visits to the apple orchard. . . I could go on and on.
So, I left my office day job during the middle of the day (an amazing achievement in itself) and took a walk yesterday. I almost always gravitate to a small park just to see trees and divorce myself from the concrete. Inside the park there is a fountain and it was filled with leaves. I was fascinated. They appeared to have been painted and stuck behind resin...then I laughed because only an artist would describe them that way.
I then walked back to my daytime reality and dove back into a series of spreadsheets. Oh, don't get me wrong, I was still daydreaming of home but duty called.
How do you escape your reality?
