This post was supposed to post yesterday. I guess we’ll just post this post today
I just had a long heartfelt chat with a fan of the books. The input I receive as a business and an artist is invaluable. And on a personal level, it makes it feel like what I’m doing has meaning. That deeper connection, it feels oh so good. That feeling is way too rare, missing in everyday life, found in the occasional stranger visa vi a creative process.
I don’t get a lot. Not nearly enough. But when I do get it, it affirms what I’m doing is right. Or wrong! Either way, it gives me a way point from which to orient and plan my next move. And that is a huge deal. All those comment cards and a requests from businesses to let them know how they’re doing, those efforts are made for good reason. We wanna keep in touch with yall. We’re hungry to know whether or not we are doing a good job. Our survival is dependant on it.
So, please don’t be shy about sharing your opinions if you have them.
Up next, I’m looking at the work involved in the book. Its a lot. A weird idea came up about writing a smaller simpler book as an in-between whilst I work on the main book. I can’t tell if its me being overly hungry for new projects, me wanting to prove to people I’m working on something, or me just having a dry run for design and layout process. Probably all three. Maybe even overcompensation for not feeling like I’m working hard enough. How likely is it? I honestly don’t know. Might as well try and see.
As for morale. I feel great and I’m ready to get things done. Exercise and meditation are back on point. Depression and anxiety levels are ebbing. In case it didn’t show here, the last few week have been yuck. Now though, now I’m feeling like I woke up. I’m fresh and raring to go.
So let’s go. Let’s get stuff done while the mood is here.
