You know how sometimes you find yourself doing things that seem to be vestiges of a prior set of priorities or a life you had but has now passed – except for this one thing? Maybe it’s a friendship you keep up that’s damned unlikely and doesn’t fit your narrative, or a habit you’ve clung to, or, in my case a couple hours a week of a job that I keep saying I’m done with!
Today’s blog post is a quick video I made on the way to said job yesterday. For some reason driving just gets my jaw and creative ideas going. I’m loving considering questions that open my consciousness and perplex my logical mind as part of my creativity breakthrough month. Today I found myself considering the question of how this apparent vestige feeds me, and ultimately, why it’s creatively sound to have stuff that just doesn’t make sense.
What if, in being creative, we tapped into the great mysteries that are incomprehensible to our conscious, egoic sense of logic and rightness? What if creativity tapped into the perverse? Into secrets and hidden things and brought them to light and just left them there without having to make everyone comfortable about them? What if it’s supposed to be uncomfortable?
Let me know your thoughts in the comments: What parts of your life are mysteriously hanging on, and how might that be perfect?
