A creature of habit
I think that applies to us all to some degree, but this morning I am acutely aware that I don’t need to look too far to find a prime example.
I’ve got my hand up.
When we returned from our last adventure, I cleared out my art kit box, recognising that I am all too good at putting something extra in whilst never taking anything out. Not only was it becoming too stuffed to close, it has pretty heavy too. So I emptied it, thinking I’d just begin again before the next trip.
I just went to gather the things for our road trip and had forgotten I’d done that! It wasn’t so difficult to assemble the basics though and of course, I knew exactly where to find a record of a previous kit too. My pink box was soon packed and ready.
But in looking for the right colour ink pad, I opened the drawer with a few leftovers from previous projects. Maybe there’s something in there I might use?
Feeling virtuous at “using what I have”, I soon filled a small zip bag with stickers and the like. (Hang on, why am I including a “Caribbean” sticker?)
And then there was the question of colour. Shall I take a small box of watercolours or my bag of Neocolour crayons? Or the new set of wax aquarelle crayons bought in Prague?
Or shall I do as I did last time and take a handful of Inktense coloured pencils? Lighter, cleaner and more compact, they’re the obvious choice. In fact, I don’t know why I even considered the others. I always take my Inktense pencils with me!
So there we are then.
What do you mean, what clothes am I taking?
