The ripping and stripping continues here. Somethings definitely coming down and new things wanting to step to the fore. Some of those have nothing to do with computers, writing, even words. Now what?
I notice that the four Main Ingredients listed in the side bar and last posting are not the only main ingredients. They’re the ones that are captured most easily here, no big surprise in that. They are my work, my passions, my practices, my offerings. It seems that the relative weight and attention given to each is being rejiggered now. The whole mess pressing for restructuring. The relative sizes and shapes and the ways they’re wired together no longer fit who I think I am.
To see what I mean, take out your own business card, or have a look at your website. Look at the company name, your name, and other info there. Look at font-sizes, domains and colors. Or look at your office or home space. Is it you? Is it enough? And are the biggest and brightest things the most important things? Do the connections feed and reflect reality as you know it? Shut the computer and email and blogging down for days at a time. Step back from any of your central projects and passions. Who would you be without it? Notice that passion means suffering. Does that fit?
These are some of the questions I’ve been bumping into lately, in that totally unplanned and inconvenient way that is Life’s habit. Far away from most of what has been my work and my world, not unhappily in it or out of it mind you, I simply have the opportunity of noticing what is solid and sure and what is not. And for now, the sure list is shorter than the not. [grin]
