To be honest, I have been a bit lost. Maybe it has something to do with the loss the last weeks have brought the world, with some of it landing close to home. Or, perhaps it has something to do with losing the structure of a daily practice and judging myself harshly for it. Or, maybe it has something to do with perspective, with how I am looking at what is happening.
The thing is, my hands are doing something thing different, and my brain has not fully caught up.
I have thought that my creativity’s outward expression has to take the form of words and an image that happens daily: a structure, a formula. Something succinct and meaningful that inspires and propels the reader forward into her own creativity. But the truth is, I’m not doing this for you; I’m doing it for me, and somewhere along the line, I lost sight of that. I got this idea that my actions had to be for something greater than my own development. And what I am waking up to right now is that it is ALL about my own development. And when you interact with me, it is about YOUR development.
I’m doing this to punctuate my own realizations and bring them down to the bones. To validate that I am a living, breathing human being in an active timeline with an unknown expiry date.
