Writing Begins with Self-Forgiveness

Paintings by Alexandre Cabanel

“..We read a lot about different writers’ eccentric processes – but what about those crucial moments before we put pen to paper? For me, writing always begins with self-forgiveness. I don’t sit down and rush headlong into the blank page. I make coffee. I put on a song I like. I drink the coffee, listen to the song. I don’t write. Beginning with forgiveness revolutionizes the writing process, returns it being to a journey of creativity rather than an exercise in self-flagellation.  I forgive myself for not sitting down to write sooner, for taking yesterday off, for living my life. That shame? I release it. My body unclenches; a new lightness takes over once that burden has floated off. There is room, now, for story, idea, life.

I put my hands on the keyboard and begin.”  – Daniel José Older

That’s the ending, now let’s start from the beginning..

/2016

“Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art: to bring all our energies to each encounter, to remain flexible enough to notice and admit when what we expected to happen did not happen. We need to remember that we are created creative and can invent new scenarios as frequently as they are needed.”                                                — M. Angelou

Here’s to a new year of adventures. ♥

So Long, Fertile Solitude

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and Fertile Solitude is no exception to the idiom.

Although the walls may be down and the gallery is restored to a blank canvas for future dreamers, the exhibition lives on through images.

So let’s end 2016 on a high note with some maze memories to keep us warm through the winter..

Lunchtime: That One Time in Basel

(Paul McCarthy ‘Tomato Head (Green’), sold to a private collector for $4.75MM at this year’s Art Basel)

Last spring I took a small flight in the middle of the night from one tiny place to another.

BOS ✈ ZRH

I was on my way to Switzerland to attend Art Basel.

This international fair is the art world’s equivalent of New York Fashion Week and boasts four annual shows across three continents. Since its Swiss beginnings in 1970, Basel attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year, executes sales in the millions, and showcases the work of some of today’s, and yesterday’s, leading artists from across the globe.

This year’s visit was my maiden voyage. And the original plan was to document the experience through on-the-spot insights and daily digests from my airbnb home, but when I finally arrived in Europe and began wandering the dreamy streets of Basel, the last thing I wanted to do was tuck myself away at a computer in a room that belonged to my host’s teenage daughter.

Despite her tasteful tableau of One Direction merchandise.

I didn’t have much time in the city and the exchange rate served as a gentle, yet constant, reminder that this trip would not be an everyday occurrence. So, I set out to make the most of my visit – seeing as much as possible, sleeping as little as possible, and fueling myself with Nature’s Valley™ as I flitted from location to location.
