ambling along

January 11, 2016

Even though I’m reading books again, I’m not reading much of anything very often. I have a whole stack of books from the library — I haven’t looked at them, and some all are going back unread.

I’m spending hours in my studio, mostly just looking around and daydreaming or thinking.

I haven’t even been dreaming very much.

I do 1 or 2 things every day that are related to making my studio more congenial. I don’t press myself to do more, or to speed up the process. I’m feeling my way into new rhythms.

= = =

With all the unstructured time in my studio, I’ve realized I want everything in it to resonate with at least 1 part of me. All the parts don’t have to fit together neatly (and they don’t). I no longer want items that aren’t about present-Mea.

This is a big change, and kind of scary, so I’m being gentle with myself as I implement it.

Moving things around, rediscovered 3 books I thought I’d permanently lost. Improvised a standing desk out of a stack of shelves. Great way to store piles of books from the floor — alas, it’s too high to reach my laptop comfortably.

= = =

I no longer have any sense of my life “going” somewhere. I’m okay with that.

    Have been feeling much the same… thank you for articulating the concrete minutia of abstract transitions.
