resolutions: work smarter, not harder.
doing unnecessary things is a very important component in the magical arts of creation. that said, unnecessary things seem to be driving me into the ground these days - physically, psychically, financially.
in 2011, i am going to explore the tension between frill and true beauty in the hopes of finding less taxing ways to do exciting things. i am also going to do some very boring but empowering work in the realms of organization and streamlining. i want and need more time for rest and leisure (my leisure-looking digital mythology can be deeply deceiving). so what has to go? i have some ideas.
for now, i am making timelines and spreadsheets and putting systems and procedures into place so that i can continue to entrench myself in this handmade life without having to live in a cardboard box...or a car...or a cardboard car.
it's tedious and thrilling all at once.
