Oasis of Calm

This past week’s been challenging when it’s come to writing the MoaT. I’m pretty burned out at the moment and just haven’t felt like it, and knowing there’s an engaged readership on the receiving end of my inelegant ramblings doesn’t help. 

But I haven’t skipped a day yet.

I’m reminded that the process of doing a thing is almost always more revelatory than the finished product.

That it’s ok entertaining every variation on a theme as to why something shouldn’t get done, letting self-doubt take up the majority of your creative real estate in the process (like it has for me tonight), then doing the thing anyway.

That being an engaged, creative human requires unique and unerring vulnerability, and doing the thing you say you’re going to do is an oasis of calm in a disquiet world.
