During the creative process – your beautiful space.
“You see this pattern over and over with many creative people: they have this little bit of magic, a spark of something that comes naturally to them, and it’s often messy and weird and a little bit off, and that’s why they catch our attention in the first place. The odd magic is what we love about them.” ~ Austin Kleon
Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons.
You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
Asking the simplest of questions can deliver the easiest of answers.
None of us, not you, not me, are as confused on what we want (or how to get it) as we might sometimes believe we are.
What’s on Your Slate?
Might we see our life as a slate that can be written, erased, replaced
to arrive, one line at a time
into the ecstasy that is Life.
What if we were to practice, every day, something that we desired to become really good at doing?
And what if that practice was one of those things that when done, actually multiplied, like an investment of sorts, in our lives?
What if it was free, didn’t take much time and could be done anywhere, anytime of the day?
What if doing it had the power to shape us in powerful, marvelous ways?
What if it was so simple a child could do it?
Wondering what this magical thing might be?
It’s one you know well…
The thing about immersion is it can only mean one thing. You are actually in the present moment! You aren’t multi-tasking, your mind isn’t racing ahead to where you need to be next and you are not handling yesterday’s conversations in your mind.
You are front and center for YOUR LIFE.
Which is where, curiously enough, all the magic happens 😉
What Are the Odds?
When it crosses your mind to wonder ‘how long did it take…’ flip the question.
Ask yourself why you feel like you need to know. If it’s because that you fear the odds are stacked against you just remember this.
Note to Self
Words are like food.
They can be powerful, debilitating, liberating, limiting, infused with energy, sorrowful, joyful, expressive and at the right time….
I find I need words in my life to steer me. To bring to remembrance what matters, what is real, and what is TRUTH.
