The Practice Trick
Two Years Ago,
I used to write at any time throughout the day. Sometimes I do that now, but I tend to get wiped out by afternoon.
Practice is a trick. Tricking myself to stay in tune, aware and noticing. I do it more when I’m not at my notebook. Able to look around and be where I am. Noticing the pipes and fixtures at Happy Fish.
The high tables, bench and stool style. Elegant lighting like upside-down roulette tables or wedding cakes hanging from the ceiling.
Catie says she writes in this raw way to get emotion out. I guess that’s part of it for me, but more so it’s practice in noticing. Seeing. Trusting mind, voice, body, and everything that comes with it. That includes emotion but doesn’t stop there.

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:
