this is a shoutout to the process

the messy unassured wide open anything can happen process. 

to showing up into the room day after day.

to doing it right.

bright white glows. google docs. unfinished readings. collages. to good ideas. to the scratches that follow falls. to sparks that lead nowhere. unraveling.

to missteps

to glorious mistakes

to

when you don't wanna do it

but

you've done it day in and day out so you do it anyway.

this is an i see you to the process

teaching me the timbers of my own voice

holding me through the wild wreckages.

the bare rebuildings.

this is to throwing it alllll

away

crumbled paper

to the plateau

 

play more. eat your breakfast so you are not lightheaded.

hey hamstrings. i feel you. 

hey spine. curve alittle more today

the process of moving even when confused. trust among darkness' void.

 

just trust.

now trust alittle more.

sagged bags of books. crumpled brown paper. silent rooms. mason jars of slushing tea. full journals. warm ups that turn into jam sessions. to naps. to snacks. to dirty yoga mats. 

this is to the mornings at links. the quiet afternoons with the coffee table pulled to the side. stifled leaps in the living room. pink sunsets and hissing radiators warming the attic at SSCAC.

1. why do you return to your process/practice?

2. what has to be done in order for you to begin your process/practice?

3. on a scale of 1-5, how likely are to throw it all away and start anew at some point in the process.

Here is a quick questionnaire for you to take stock of your own process. Whether you consider yourself a creative or not. We are creatures of process and practice.  This audit is an offering to all and can applied to the process of cooking, writing a difficult email or creating a librato. You are invited to share your audit with me that will be shared here. Otherwise feel free to grab a notebook/piece paper and jot your answers down
