Playfulness is a state that makes me happy. If I play, I stop being critical. When I want to explore new ground it's necessary, because if I keep having a brake on my brain, nothing new can come out.
If I am in the play state, ideas flow easily. Actually too many ideas come up. I welcome it and are thankful for it. In a later state I will have a critically look and weed out the not so useful plans, but I do not throw them away, they stay in the inspiration map.
To get in the play state, I have to be happy. Going out in nature helps me to get in that state. Taking my camera with me makes me observe it in an intense way. It also feels like I invite ideas to come to me. Showing you the pictures I made last week of the Anemones gives you an impression what I mean. You can find even more in album on the La Leipsig facebook page: Abundance.
So here I sat on the ground absorbing all the beauty. At home it led in a certain way to new designs in my jewellery. That's why I love & need to observe nature.
Get outside & Keep playing!
