I could spend the rest of my life clearing the decks, if I'm not careful

    on the topic of art, here's 3 book recommendations: the war of art by steven pressfield, art & fear by david bayles and ted orland, both of which are relatively short works, and julia cameron's the artist's way which sets you on a 12-week course and gives tasks for each week. it's also where the idea of morning pages comes from.

    Nobody objects to a woman being a good writer or sculptor or geneticist if at the same time she manages to be a good wife, good mother, good-looking, good-tempered, well-groomed, and unaggressive.

    Nodding my head so hard in agreement. There had to be something deeper, a reason we feel compelled to “work” at the detriment of having a fuller life. Thanks for the reminder to work on it 😂

    I went to a talk once by a designer who made a lot of art and she said something that stuck with me. It was along the lines of, do you want to know how I "do it all"? I stopped cleaning the house! Forget trying to make your life instagrammable, it's a losing battle anyway. I also think about how later in life I'll remember all the art I made, but I really won't remember all the hours I spent doing chores.
