Not Knowing

October 24, 2011 § 4 Comments

Often I don’t know how it’s going to turn out, or what it’s about, or what I want to say about it. I walked today but didn’t take my camera. My mind and heart still heavy with a Big Bank mistake that wasn’t mine – from weeks ago. All being worked out now but I yelled at people over the phone unable to contain myself. Such a terrible feeling. Like why do I feel I have to know everything, to use the correct language to be understood that moment, to have things done right, to not feel the old “if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.”  ??

I’m working on a commission where the very technique is all about  ‘Just do it and see how it turns out; You can adjust and touch up later.’ I love this process because I don’t have to know everything. It’s always a comfort to know at least this. And I did see grass this green today. Even the two-tones where the sunlight lit up individual blades in contrast to their shadowy neighbors.
