I’m out of my usual environment visiting folks in the great white frozen north. I am trying to learn ways to enjoy snow and cold from my hostess. I’m game to try both snowshoeing and cross country skiing. In my time indoors, cozy in front of a wood fire in the fireplace, I’m finishing up a hand-quilting project that I began at least seven years ago.
I expect creative rewards from each activity…trying something new and finishing something that has been nagging at the back of my mind for a long time as an unfinished project. Completion of any project gives an incomparable moment of satisfaction and frees up space in the mind for new endeavors. I call it the freedom of finishing.
