On Sunday mornings, Lucy and I have the ritual of going to Christy's Donuts and heading to Starbucks to eat while we create.  She has an old loved Amy Butler art basket that looks like this...

and we have an even older zipper bag filled with tools we might stapler, eraser, hole punch, scissors...the basics.

She creates pages like these...which I find fascinating.

I am always amazed at what my pages look like when Lucy is there with me and sans Lucy.

I seem to be more productive when she is not there. More focused.

When she is there, the distractions are numerous.  This child is always in perpetual motion or drawing while standing up. Rarely sitting down, she sometimes opts to use the seat of her chair as her table and then chooses to sit on the ground.  She breaks into song. She starts and she stops.  

Then I started thinking...I think I would like to be more like her.

To have no purpose or intention.

To break into a dance and then color some more.

To be so free.

Just for today, I want to be more like Lucy.
