It’s the middle of the night, and I can’t sleep. The piece I’m writing tomorrow on Dan Eldon is thrashing around in my consciousness … or my dream state actually … waking me up.
Eldon’s beautiful book of collages is entitled “Life Is The Journey”. It is in print again … my third copy is on the way.
I don’t fight these unconscious “trips” when they begin … whatever the time of day. I concede the fact that I’m going somewhere quite powerful, without much choice in the matter.
Cultural Creatives are attuned to art. In the 16 Myers Briggs personality types, I’m an ENFP, the most adventurous and creative.
My life deck is stacked against me on these kinds of subjects, so I’ve donned the plaid tam, and just accepted reality at 2am.
I don’t spend much time considering topics like Mercury being in retrograde or other irrational forces. I accept the idea that the universe speaks to us in unusual ways, but I don’t try to define matters beyond that. I’ve had my share of inexplicable moments — the old Ashanti Bazaar store in New York — and also the Dapper Museum in Paris.
Life Is Better With A Cuppa Tea
Anne is a double-espresso kind of gal, but I drink herbal tea late at night.
Pouring the boiling water into a simple but elegant white mug that says “Love Deeply”, I chasticized myself: “Writing the Dan Eldon piece is a big priority for you Anne. You have such a connected relationship to his collages, his values, his work and his art. Don’t be worrying about the 27 other projects you’re doing right now, trying to turn the massive ship that is your life in a new direction, based on business and writing. Focus on Eldon.”
