Shipping our art is similar to planting a tree. Some of us will put off planting a small pot with a small tree in it because we can’t decide where to place it.

If only we would decide. Years can go by, frozen by our fear of making a mistake.

In a few short years, we could have been enjoying the shade.

Three steps to midlife peace and contentment

Three steps to midlife peace and contentment:

  1. work harder than ever to re-think things (could take years)
  2. put simple processes in place to recalibrate our shifting priorities
  3. begin to live more fully aware of each day, and the many mundane moments in it

We do more at first, so we can do less eventually, so we can have more.


Doing less. Having more.

Never thought it was possible.

A work in progress by the way.
