Doing things.


Dear Self,

Hello! It’s been a while.

Not since I turned up, I’ve turned up every day (sometimes just), but since I’ve really been able to sit here with myself and reflect upon what’s actually going on.

Truth be told…I’m almost here – but perhaps not quite!

I woke up this morning with a sense of wanting to have this conversation.

I then got distracted by the internet. Which is not how this works! I know that. I’ve always known that doing much of anything before I write to you…well it’s not wrong, it’s just less productive.

Anyway, I was distracted…but now I’m here and feel like I’m standing on the cusp of something.

It’s all a bit simple sounding but..

Doing things is better for me than not doing things.

This idea of ‘rest’, well it’s important for me to have studio time, to be quiet and to be in movement…but it is also as important for me to be making things. I’ve been carrying some weird idea that I can’t do things because I’m too busy or overwhelmed or confused…it’s not helping.

So, do some things and see what happens.
