The other day I was so powerfully motivated to write but had no time. Today I have the time but my mind is a blank slate.
I wanted to talk about resistance and influence and getting out of the way but what did I want to say about these things?
I had knocked over my bookshelves and the anxiety of the world fell in on me. When I regained my equilibrium I wanted to tell you to be mindful, to balance the influence you exert with the influence you absorb. I wanted to say that being a star sheep in anyone’s flock is still being a sheep. I wanted to challenge you to release your affiliations.
What are your religious affiliations?
My answer: God is in the details. Decipher with caution.
What are your political affiliations?
My answer: I think for myself. Once again, decipher with caution.
Who are your friends?
My answer: They know who they are.
I put no stickers on my car.

I’m reminded of the old WinRock mall. One could not go there without being harangued by the drone of saws on metal. They thought they were being smart; fixing, fixing, fixing…. Fixing the mall to death. The lesson here is not to keep fixing, the lesson is to jump the tracks.
We’ll not be given time for creation. We’ll be asked to create in real time.
