How did I support my creative process today?

— I talked to Caleen about dance and the blues in literature, among other things.

— I played my Summer Walker album on vinyl

— transcribed to music

How do I want to spend the rest of my day to support my creative process?

(I think the rug I wanted for my alter room may be the rug I’ll use for my classroom, creating home there, too.)

— watch Heal on Netflix

— Look at Urban Bush Women

— Transcribe the rest of my papers

I was woken up by a phone call from a nnumber I didn’t recognize. It turned out to be a person I found it hard to place in my new iternation.

I think I want to practice trusting that I’m doing what I’m supposed to. So if I’m sleeping, I don’t need to rush and act like I wasn’t.

And if the call is unscheduled, or at a time of day when I’ve decided not to accept calls, then it can wait.

It’s hard to accept that maybe things are perfect, and I don’t have to change, only become more myself. And I’d be running from myself by allowing myself to be pulled by reactions to the outside world. A lesson worth meditating on.

Another thing I did: I chose sleep when I was tired. I’m glad.
