Even when I carve out time at home to work on my passion—creating watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations—I still get plagued by the “shoulds.” I should be doing the laundry. I should catch up on some paperwork. I should take the dog for a long walk.
But when I brought my art materials with me on a recent Azamara voyage, I didn’t pack the “shoulds.” They stayed firmly at home where they, ahem, should be.
We all crave being in the moment when we’re on a cruise ship – forgetting all the cares of “real life” and just focusing on what’s in front of us. Creating art does that for me.
