Sometimes, I just need to stop. Stop obsessing about the emails, the reports, the person who said that one negative thing in a list of a lot of positive things. Stop. Creativity won’t come more easily out of chaos. The spark of noticing something beautiful or capturing a fast passing glimpse of the magnificent is impossible when I’m distracted by doing not being. Racing mind is not a reflection of a discipline of awareness. Breathing in caffeine. Breathing out anxiety.
I have GOT to stop drinking coffee.
