…..from ‘Fearless Creating’ by Eric Maisel, PH. D.

“Working means holding the work.

Working means hushing.

Working means starting.

Working means mastering the disinclination to work.

Working means working in the moment.

Working means entering the trance of working.

Working means appraising.

Working means choosing.

Working means negotiating a maze.

Working means living with chaotic-mind anxiety.

Working means ordering the work.

Working means wrestling with the thing from the sea.

Working means manifesting drive and direction.

Working means reframing the impossible as possible.

Working means making and correcting mistakes.

Working means waking up working.

Working means working on a given day.

Working means silencing distractions.

Working means surviving disturbances.

Working means loving the work, not hating it.

Working means providing your own warmth.

Working means maintaining tension.

Working means working over time.

Working means surrendering.

Good luck!”

Stitching

blueCbook3Still here, still stitching.

And painting.

And pasting.

And pondering.

This coptic stitched journal is available in my Gray Zinnia shop.

SOLD

Note the close-loop nylon carpet – on my old work platform for doing upholstery. It’s decades old, has endured hard and steady use as a work surface, but functions very well for hand-cutting mat board, etc., so it’s still here, too!
