The In Between

magic-doorEver notice that we don’t step right on the doorway into a room or a building?  We step from this space to that space without actually touching the door frame.  Sometimes we lean on the door frame to talk with someone or wait to get someone’s attention (*cough* teenagers *cough*) but even then if you look, the feet are usually either in one room or another. …

A Line In The Sand

line-in-the-sandIt’s easy to get stuck in what can seem a hamster wheel of thinking, intending, planning, considering, and preparing. It feels productive but like a mirage, no matter how much you do you never quite reach a point in which the step over the finish line into actually being that instead of preparing to be that.…

Stone StepsEver notice that some of your best ideas, your “aha moments” and epiphanies happen when you’re not thinking of something?  In fact they come where your brain is off doing something else completely, focused on nothing and your body/emotions/soul are running the show. …

Crushing Expectations

Messy PaintArtists of all types have a bit of performance anxiety. It looks different depending on the modality and venue. Actors and dancers can get adrenalized before a performance, rehearsal, or tryout/audition, visual artists worry about the response to a particular piece or showing, writers try to not value the reviews even while they are reading them with an acid stomach.…
