taking 30

I’m going to spend the next 30 days away from writing.

Instead, I will use the space I normally hold for writing to do some much-needed reflection on foundational questions like:

how do I want to put myself out in the world?

what do I want to express?

where do I want to express it?

and does writing have to be it, or are there other outlets worth trying out?

before I part, let me leave you with a quote from Helen Frankenthaler that’s been on my mind: “There are no rules, that is one thing I say about every medium, every picture . . . that is how art is born, that is how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules, that is what invention is about.”

See you June 15th.
