I don’t have time for you today.

Dear Self,

I don’t have time to write to you today.

I’m sorry.

That’s just how it is.

Love

Luke

Just don't blink. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Dear Self,

There is a plan.

Now my job is to stick to it.

Don’t ask silly questions.

Don’t expect everything to be perfect.

Don’t worry about the silly little things.

Look to the horizon and just don’t blink.

Love

Luke.

Dear Self,

After the rhythm of the holidays getting back into it all feels a lot like riding a bull.

Everything seems to be happening so quickly. So many things to do in rapid succession.

Just hold on and keep breathing.

I think that is the best I have got today.

Love

Luke

Dear Self,

I can’t do everything.

Which is comforting, in some odd way.

Now I just need to choose what it is I can do.

That’s not so hard…is it?

Love

Luke

Dear Self,

When you put it all together…

Family, friends, work, cooking, laughter, creating, home…

My plate is very full.

Happy.

But very full.

My boundary.

My boundary. Drawing Luke Hockley.

My boundary. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Dear Self,

There are certain things I don't really like to do in the world.

Certain things that feel like they go beyond what makes me happy and healthy.

I can find it hard to remember what these things are if I think avoiding them might let other people down.

It can feel like I am confused about what I want to do.

But I know.

I know what I want.

It’s just hard to honor that boundary in the face of disappointing people.

My year of rejection.

My year of rejection. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Dear Self,

I need you to get ready.

This year is going to be my year of rejection.

I have realised I avoid situations where I could be rejected…a lot.

So, I have decided this year is going to be the year where I put myself into situations where the things I am creating can be rejected.

That I am going to get good at just letting the water run off the ducks back.

Maybe it’s a bit like exposure therapy.

Buckle up.

Love

Luke

A strange forest.

A strange forest. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Dear Self,

I am a strange forest full of trees.

The wind rustles me.

I challenge my limbs with weight.

I cry leaves when it hails on my branches.

A strange, strange forest that no one can understand.

People walk amongst my limbs.

Their rough hands feel along the smooth roots,

Their smooth hands feel along the rough trunks.

We whisper the unexpected into the canopy together.

Knowing each of us briefly

In my strange forest, full of trees.

Love

Luke.
