the present moment ... taking what you love and making it what you do
(totally self-imposed thinking of course, no one is actually making my body into salt water taffy)
is creating a state of busy-ness that is not a comfortable place for me. I can text and tweet with the best of them (sort of), but I also know I can't live in this perpetual state of distraction and lack of center.
I know all the answers are given to us in the present moment and this is exactly the place I am having trouble accessing lately.
So, this week, even as I fill my wholesale orders from my recent shows
(and production work is often a great way for me to get back into the present moment - especially when brazing because it is hard to be scattered when working with fire)
I will be taking more time for things that center me and getting back into my meditation practice which is the last thing I should let go of, but always seems to be the first thing to go when things get crazy.
Finding the pieces of what we love to do and making them into what we do is where our heart and happiness lies, I think ...
Summer is fading folks, let's not waste another minute of it ...
