Overall I would say that I am an organized person. I like things to be in order, and I find that I thrive in an ordered environment. If I want something, I want to lay my hands on it instantly. Knowing this about myself, I am fascinated by the fact that when I am in production, it looks like my workbench has exploded!
The other day I left my workbench for a moment, and when I came back, I saw it, the explosion! When I am busily creating, I am completely oblivious to the fact that when I use something, I set it down wherever when I am done. I have stacks of tools and materials all over every available surface including my lap, but even in the disarray I can still grab whatever I need quickly.
When I think of the mess that my workbench stays in, I find it rather comforting. That mess of tools and materials indicates that I have been productive, that I am productive. So here is to each and every one of us who creates in what looks like an exploded mess; bless it, know that you are not alone, and keep on creating!
