Last week I found out that the links to my websites in my email signatures were not working. Two days ago I discovered that the links to my offerings on my blog (over on the right) – One-to-One Creativity Coaching, my eBook, Breaking into Blossom and Little Fictions and Ragged Memoirs, also were not working. They took you to the “Whoops, what you are looking for is not here” page.
This is not good. My offerings are one of the ways that I support myself and that I reach out with my heart to those of you who are reading. So now all of those things are working.
Today I got this from Abraham: “It is as easy to create a castle as a button. It’s just a matter of whether you’re focused on a castle or a button.”
This feels connected to the theme of stringing and un-stringing that I wrote about here. Fixing digital glitches feels like making buttons. I want to be building castles. However, there is much to be said for the humble button and the act of buttoning as good protection against the cold.
I have been reading Anna Halprin’s book about her seventy+ years of making performance. What I find inspiring is the through line of her devotion to her work. I am sure that amidst all the building of castles there were a lot of buttons. (She had children too which always makes for many, many buttons.)
Today was a button day. Tomorrow, castles.
