Getting to work

Am in the midst of a string of some challenging projects. Can’t seem to get one all the way done before I need to start on the next, so there’s been on overlapping that is uncomfortable. Just keeping my head above water here. Today I absolutely needed to get started on prepping for a residency that starts in a few days. I decided to start by spending most of the day clearing my desk. Although I wrote recently wrote about this need to clear space,¬† I was happy to read this bit last night from Steven Pressfield’s book The War of Art

It’s great when I read how someone else expresses what I’ve been thinking about.

I am an naturally organized person, but not a naturally neat person. It’s always a struggle to keep my space clear. But that’s a good thing, because it means I am constantly doing what I love, which is work.

Here’s a snippet from a different book that I recently finished, A Month in the Country by J.L. Carr, expressing the thoughts of the a person who is uncovering a painting that had been whitewashed over.

This has nothing to do with anything else: it’s such a lovely snippet I wanted to share it.

Now to bed so I can get started again early tomorrow.
