Made By the Light of the Sun

When engaged in a project full of invention and discovery I continue to work as evening falls, until the studio darkens and neither lamplight nor overhead lighting are sufficient. (None rival daylight.) Then put the project respectfully aside eager for sunlight's return bringing with it the opportunity to recommence the process.

Have had to coax myself from the studio on many occasions like a parent reasoning with a child who is still romping about on the playground at dusk. The child wants to linger. "We can come back tomorrow," the parent reassures her. Frequently I've tidied up the studio at night with the same promise to myself: you can come back tomorrow!
