Thursday... April 29


Holla... it's all warm and strange outside today... really super windy... but the wind is warm... like it's blowing summer closer and closer.
~ excited...

I can sit with my hand held... wait...
Hand held: now a becoming a rather dated piece of equipment...
but [ :: it's a fantastic writing tool :: ] and until I can afford something new and improved... you know...

... ok, where was I? oh yeah... I can sit with my hand held for hours and
agonize over each individual word in a verse of poetry...
I'm working on this little bit of text that is an exercise in 5-5-8 and elements of day's light.
(to be explained by posting it... but it's not done).
The point is... I was noticing that the vibe I end up in is pretty much the same as
when I'm deeply into a bit of code or p-shopping a graphic for something...
Time slips away... and I become this person desperately at peace with himself.
I don't much think I'm all that when it comes to coding, graphics or poetry...
I'm good... but the world is full of good...
I am, however, eminently satisfied with my own results...
and a big big big part of that... is how deeply I enjoy the creative process... of getting into that groove...
of being zoned out into the vibe of something that takes over the fabric of time
and leaves me feeling like I've been on a journey when it's done.

I can only imagine how a true artist must feel when they swim in the tides of their creative spirits...
