I felt overloaded with my usual bevy of concerns...money, health, my art, and other more subtle concerns.
During a bikeride I made an appeal to the above and I heard in a calming voice...."Steve, just sludge through this period. Work through the closure on projects as you are bringing completion to them. When you have the time see if can introduce new concepts to art in a light hearted way. Let the money concerns be for now, you're okay and don't project onto the future. Just sludge through."
I answered "but I've been doing that for so long...the details are overwhelming."
"Its doable," I heard. "You can't have a guarantee. That's not how life works. You have to live in the fog but still move forward. It's what's open to you now. You also enjoyed that lecture on Cuba. You can let in some new information and enjoy that. You don't have to have all the answers. You can absorb other influences. So sludge forward until things become completed and take it from there. Alright Steve?"
