little (big)

I'm on an introspective trek right now because well. 

Because I am a person. 

I try and figure out why I make things, teach, learn, care about what I am working on...

And I am noticing that it is consistently about depth.

and perspective makes all the difference. 
What you focus on.

you can stop at the hard stuff. or the sad. But those things are little (big) gifts that get you past the surface. into the depth where so much beauty and love exists.

There is only a breath between deep pain and deep joy.  

it is about reality. and how to see it.

And while some of my work lives in the imaginary realm, it is rooted in reality.

sometimes real can be. or feel like. the worst.

loss is terribly painful.

suffering is hard to watch, or feel.

live longer than 30 seconds and surely you will encounter something terrible.

sometimes alone. sometimes as a group of people.

I am very disoriented when the leader of this country's government cultivates fear and encourages division.

I am sad.

and angry. 

there are still groups that feel they are above others.
and even some that feel hate. 


certainly the challenges and difficult times bring out the importance of love.

take up your heart. and make sure people know what it is made of.

Maybe first make sure you know what it is made of.

I am still figuring that out. but I know part of it is action.
and that is maybe a little part of why I make things.


great things are possible. and some things are probable. 

the best things are both. 

when you go do them.
