Thoughts I'm thinking as I give myself a year end review, noting all the creative and professional successes, failures, achievements and misses from 2015.
Perhaps you'll enjoy thinking on these questions, too. I'd love to hear your answers.
Perhaps you have your own questions. Feel free to post them in the comments.
How do you identify what you do with your life? Who are you?
What is the thing you care about most in this life, to do, to be, to pursue?
In what are you most interested?
What is at your life's center right now?
How do all those things work together?
That thing you love most, that big pursuit of yours, that most important creative endeavor--
If you were to name the thing you love most about it,
Or sum up all the things you love about it in one word or phrase or sentence,
The thing that keeps you coming back to it no matter what,
What would that be?
In other words, why do you keep doing what you do and loving what you love?
That reason can change, you know.
What keeps your drive, your passion, your engine running?
How do you fall back in love with something you've done for a long time,
After you might otherwise grow weary?
Or if you are in love with that thing, how can you name that quality or give it an image,
That helps you return to it when you feel disconnected or worn out?
What is 2016 your year of?
Happy year end. Happy new new.

Process notes on a work in progress (me). This mostly contains raw rough content pulled out of practice notebooks. Occasional posts also invite you into the way I work, with intermittent notes on the hows and whys on the whats I make. Less often you may also find prompts and processes I've brought to workshops, as well as surveys that help me gather material for projects. Similar earlier posts from years ago can be found on:
