I have spent the past couple weeks organizing my documentation and thinking from the past several months of projects. Cleaning mental house.
But now it is time to emerge from this house cleaning and start building again. I need to step up to the next round of thoughts.
BUILD, DON'T THINK. This is the mantra for the month of February.
I need to walk around some flea markets, build some noise making circuits, and take some shit apart. I need to get my hands dirty. I need to be on auto pilot.
I also need to research other artists. I need a stack of books/papers at home that I can flip through and draw connections without any pressure. These need to be BOOKS AND PAPERS, not online internet crap. I must be able to sit on my floor and physically roll around on my reading.
I must not concern myself with the final goal. I have curiosities that need to be tinkered with to find out what I honestly care about right now.
February - start running "BUILD DON'T THINK"
March - focus on breath "WHERE AM I NOW? WHERE DO I WANT TO GO NEXT"
April - rhythm, auto pilot, focus "GO THERE"
