In many ways I am such a classic type A personality. I love productivity, seeing results, and crossing things off my to do list. A period of momentum is always followed by a harsh drought. An absence of dreams. Even writing this now I get a small pang of anxiety in the pit of my stomach, expecting the next round. I’ve come to realize that those periods can be the most productive. Losing focus is a type of intervention. It means it’s time to ditch the lists for a while and make space for daydreaming. It means it’s time to fill up all the empty spaces. There is so much freedom in both knowing and accepting that everything is always in flux. Time that is filled with dreams is precious.  I constantly remind myself of that so that I don’t take it for granted. So that I am enjoying the process of making art but also living life day to day. It is always out of joy that I find myself making my best work. 

 

This week on the ‘wasting time’ docket:

Leaf through a book in the library, 

Buy something at the grocery store I’ve never cooked with,

Talk to a friend on the phone for longer than an hour,

Go for a run and let it turn into a long walk,

Take a nap during the day,

Doodle,

Meditate outside,

Take a bath,

 Window shop for nothing,

and daydream, daydream so much that the dreams start to spill into reality. 

 

Listening to: By Your Side covered by the 1975

Looking forward to: more sunny days 

Wearing: the ‘Forms’ Sweatshirt in white, which I’ve nicknamed the Dreamer.
