I’m still warming up, but there is a lot to do today. I am still unpacking from StAzna, both physically and mentally, trying to comprehend and hold on to just how much I took away from the weekend, even in its pared-down timeline this year. I’m getting another package ready to send to you. I’m organizing my professional life. Andrew has set me business card homework: making two private pinterest boards, one for Writer and one for Theta Practitioner, and pinning 40 examples of business cards that I like to each of them. I’ve already found themes for each one. I think the Writer cards will include stamps/envelopes/interaction/handwriting, while the Theta cards will have white type, photographs, life, energy flowing through them. These are my ideas so far at least.
I listened to a 45 minute lecture this morning on Carnism, started to clean up the kitchen, did more than just thinking about what I would like to write in my new moleskine notebooks, formatting the things I want to do today; the thoughts I want to think, songs I want to hear, small achievements I want to reach. I sat with the blue light for 15 minutes too, trying to soak in something good for my soul.
Last night I found a passage in Starbook that described exactly what I wish I could be:
Sometimes I wish I was mythological, illusory, transient, something that people could choose whether or not to believe in, just so that I would have the freedom of my time to myself, my art to myself, my space to myself, and then choosing when and how to reach out to others. I made so many more notes in the book. You would love this book. I found it in hardcover, and it’s quickly becoming my mystical bible, or else I would send it to you when I was finished.
Don’t let these thoughts of organization and productivity fool you. I am still in the midst of piles and lists:
I’m slowly making my way through all of it. Systematic clearing. The process of discovery.
Out of clutter, find simplicity.
From discord, find harmony.
In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity. – Albert Einstein
Good morning, T.
