And now for something completely different … kinda sorta maybe. When comparing similar things, my Aunt Lore liked to say a thing was “exactly the same only different.” So, yeah, it’s like that?
Three weeks ago I quietly went public with this here blog. My plan was to promptly add a Part 3 to my opening trilogy and scan in my hand-drawn logo, followed by an email campaign. Perfect!
But I couldn’t do it. I labored over Part 3 – in part due to a heavy brain fog. “Like pea soup,” is how my folks used to describe the thick fogs of my Pacific Northwest childhood home. Fact check: Fogs not nearly that green or smelly. (I hate split pea soup. Can you tell?) Also, I broke a tooth. It’s gone now, in its eternal resting place in molar hell. Grind in Power?!
I am a recovering perfectionist and I had me a relapse! Actually, my real addiction is to shame. According to Brené Brown, shame is the root cause of perfectionism and of much procrastination. I could find a link to BB … I’mma gonna let that go for now.
So, in the spirit of the following Sam Shepard quote, I may post other stuff before getting to Part 3: Collaboration means what now? (Non-working title)
I’m a great believer in chaos. I don’t believe that you start with a formula and then you fulfill the formula. Chaos is a much better instigator, because we live in chaos – we don’t live in rigorous form. –Sam Shepard–
