Time passes whether or not I document it.
I used to approach journalling as a means of getting rid of thoughts in my head, the adage of “getting the crap down on the page” /
But really, sometimes documenting feels like creating. What is the difference between writing what’s already there, vs, creating something out of nowhere as you write /
Which means, if I’m getting too much junk down on the page, haphazard, bonafide, junk, so that instead of clearing my head I end up creating chaos. Making messes.
Better not document. Or, better yet, better document differently.
I met with D today and we tried to talk poetry, somatics, creating with/in the body, all of which ended up giving us headaches.
Didn’t take too long to ditch that, shut up, do 5-minute speed sketches of each other, instead. Quietly, quietly.
