Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"


Music is loading really slow lately...sorry...

The Creative Process

Finally,  a visual of the creative process! I do not think any further explanation is really needed, however I do feel compelled to offer some, you knew I would!
Panic and the final approach to a deadline feel like they are correct, it is the “fucking off” period that I feel needs a little clarification.

It is the time that I KNOW I have a deadline, I NEED to be much further along and here I sit…

writing in this blog,
reading other peoples blogs and posts on FB,
cleaning the studio,
making a list of what I need to do,
organizing my underwear drawer,
checking out recipes, (please keep in mind that I am a really bad cook, this does not help, but I think it will!)
giving myself a manicure
and a host of equally unimportant but necessary activities that promote creativity.

Yep the largest and most critical part of the creative process is fucking off and I am so good at it!

  1. I am sure I have your process down pat! Add things like cleaning the bathroom, closet, or anything, ( I am not known for my sparkling housekeeping) and that is my method!
