Morning Prayer May 16, 2012
"Develop the heart. Too much energy in your country is spent developing the mind instead of the heart."
--His Holiness the Dalai Lama
In the past few weeks my administrator has insisted I complete the tail end of two projects. "Get the projects finished and you have all summer to do art. Just one more week." I'm not sure I trust her. Once I would have pushed happily along until the job was done. Now finishing seems a heroic act. Meanwhile my studio is too clean. My heart needs me to make a mess. I can hardly sit here any more. That mess is so seductive.
Baruch ata adonai this morning my heart is winning. I am so grateful. Amen
