from here to there

I was thinking the other day about the painful and long process of getting from here to there. Here is where we are right now, and one is usually in the process of trying to get there. Where is there? There is where the idea has come to fruition: the art is made, the money is in the bank, and one is happy. I was actually having a dream about this the other night, and in the dream I was having the fully actualized experience of realizing there is actually here, right now. It was very intense, as dreams can be, and when I woke up I thought how I could be a happier person if I could keep this idea with me. The concept is always there, floating around me. But, I have a tendency to forget about it, and go on to being very upset that I'm not there yet. I know you do too.
Meanwhile, I'm still goofing around, not in the studio much and out of town a lot. So, posting is slow but back-to-school September is almost here, so don't give up on me yet.

  1. I get your post - totally. I try to remind myself daily that today is important and it's not the destination that really matters cause it might not be there, or if it is there, then we're onto the next trip to there.

  2. I suffer from not being content in the now. It's always on to the next, on to the next. Will it never end? I keep trying.

  3. I am new to the world of blogging and just stumbled upon your site. I just wanted to let you know that I recognized your art from seeing it on etsy and I think you are fabulously talented!
