I find more and more that I can only be creative in one area at a time. If I am deeply engrossed in designing, cooking and photography go out the window. If my camera is always in my hands, I can't be crocheting as well. If I am in the kitchen, very little else gets done.
These days, it seems that I can't move without heading out with a dog or a child into the woods. The autumn light (when it is here) is simply magical, so we eat wraps with cold meat, no other works get done and we walk.
