in the end you will be further ahead BECAUSE you have the skill and discipline to BUILD the container
as well as learn how to fill it
just because some of the work as an artist at times focuses on
'just be there'
does not mean that a well crafted container is not important
it just takes time to get BOTH
think water and a glass
I hand you the water in a glass
without the glass
I can't get you the water
it's messy and self indulgent
if i hand you an empty glass
sometimes we are learning how to make the glass
and when water is around... it is very hard to make glass
sometimes you are learning how to trust the water... and even understand what it is and how to recognize it
is this clean water? is this coolaid? maybe I need juice or coffee...
but it feels sometimes very different than making the glass...
trying to get the liquid into the glass!
yikes... you have to start with a wide open simple container...
to catch all that good stuff
then you can start to narrow the container... refine the glass... what is the best glass for juice? wine? coffee?
