I can’t KONDO constantly!
(my “office” cum closet in the attic)
We tend to run out of Nutella, the kitchen sink is full, my office/closet is a disaster, my car is filthy and I’m no longer able (or is that willing?) to do small talk very well- I’m no Mary Oliver but she nails it here- for the human trying to be creative despite the chaos…️
“It is six A.M., and I am working. I am absentminded, reckless, heedless of social obligations, etc. It is as it must be. The tire goes flat, the tooth falls out, there will be a hundred meals without mustard. The poem gets written. I have wrestled with the angel and I am stained with light and I have no shame. Neither do I have guilt.
My responsibility is not to the ordinary, or the timely. It does not include mustard, or teeth. It does not extend to the lost button, or the beans in the pot. My loyalty is to the inner vision, whenever and howsoever it may arrive. If I have a meeting with you at three o’clock, rejoice if I am late. Rejoice even more if I do not arrive at all.”
“In creative work [we] are not trying to help the world go around, but forward. Which is something altogether different from the ordinary. Such work does not refute the ordinary. It is, simply, something else. Its labor requires a different outlook — a different set of priorities.”
You are the ones who can see what others can’t, the ones who have hearts the size of BLUE WHALES…and sometimes, we can get discouraged at our own progress or output…
Here’s my video message to you if you are feeling discouraged.
And if you are feeling stuck at work and wishing you could LOVE WHAT you do more – or love HOW YOU DO IT…check this video out.
