Spring Cleaning


My entire house is immaculate.

This is what happens when I want to procrastinate on my studio work.

I clean.

I haven't felt this lack of momentum for my creative work in quite some time, but when it's here, it really settles in. This time, I think I know why: a change is coming. I am having something of a conceptual identity crisis, thinking I want to change gears, shake myself up a bit, but I don't know how just yet. For now, it will mean a lot of reading, a lot of researching, and a lot of thinking. I'll figure this one out.

  1. According to some book I read a long time ago claening is an "artist brain" activity. Something about physical repetition can be a trigger or a way to trigger, so keep up the good work.
    Also the Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp is a good book to read.

  2. But what about the urge to re-clean things I have already cleaned? Is that extra good? Or is that just a little bit weird?

  3. To comment on your comment, any OCD behavior that is for the good can not be wrong! Unfortunatley I have quite a few tendencies that do NOT "do good"!
