Study of Line

The hubs and I got to spend an entire weekend away from the babies for the first time in 3 years to celebrate my sweet sissy's engagement in Washington D.C.  It was lovely and quite interesting how my brain was computing in a new place without the kiddos.  It was as if the constant care of the babies which took up a whole area of my brain was lifted and my artistic eye came back in a weird super strong flash.  As this creative area of my brain was in full force it felt like I was my old self/my old brain again.  I immediately started seeing lines and shapes that I would nowadays pass unknowingly.  My imagination ran wild with all of the history and architecture we got to see.  It actually was a pretty unbelievable experience and my brain is so tired that I'm not even going to try to explain it with words.  On Saturday morning we decided to walk to several museums and I couldn't help but constantly be mesmerized by all of the beautiful lines and the way that they fit together so beautifully in the architecture, jutting into the sky, and in the flowers.  It was a great day of flexing the muscles of that dusty side of my brain and here I am back at home so tired I can barely even function but I am enjoying reminiscing at the time by brain went on creative overload and I am so excited that I got the chance to just let it run wild.
