These Things Happen

October 6, 2011 § 1 Comment

Shanthi is right, we cannot take things for granted.
we need to be flexible while keeping focused. To be able to continue when things do not go as planned.

One day I walked into my studio and found my graphite pencil on the floor, broken in three places.

It hurt. It upset my sense of order.

I find peace in placing objects in what creates a feeling of balance.

But of course it’s only a pencil…

the result was having to use the pencil differently and also to buy another.

I had to shift my perception.

    I can understand what you mean by sense of order being disturbed…..
    I have my own set of rituals that are very important to me when I work. It bothers me when this is disturbed. And shifting the perception is the way to deal with it, but not an easy one.
    Now you have two options! Being able to use the new pencil or make use of the broken one in ways that the new one can’t!
