All of the shooting is done, at least for now. There are about 12 days remaining and now the hard part comes. I thought that I had a cool idea that I was going to use, but it is just not fitting together they way that I thought it would. Oh well, back to the drawing board. Lurking below the level of consciousness is an idea. Somewhere, among those 554 pictures, is a pattern, an idea. It is one of those ideas that disappears into vapor once you try to speak it. I know that it will surface; I just need to play a bit with different things and keep feeding it.
I’ve done lots of work on my proposed idea, but it’s just not working, so there’s no use in crying over spilled milk, so they say. I’ll just move back a few spaces and give it another roll and see what happens. No need for panic as that seizes up the synapses and all creativity ceases to flow. Slow and steady wins the race.
This weekend is another basketball weekend, but then again, which one isn’t?! Tony’s team is playing in Rock Hill, SC, about 1 hour from here. So, I’ll go, enjoy some basketball, and let this idea, whatever it is, bubble to the surface. Vaguely, I know that it has to do with the pictures and perhaps some quotations, but I’m not sure of the overall format. I’ll be excited to see what it is when it finally reveals itself to me. Meanwhile, I’ll just keep feeding by looking at all of the pictures that I’ve taken.
I’ll just get out of my way and let the answer come… One cannot force a thought, it must, and always, happen on it’s own. This is my way of practicing Wu-Wei, one of the basic parts of Taoism. Wu-Wei, often described as non-action, but more appropriately, non-forcing, letting things happen. Wood is always easier to cut with the grain, than against.
Go, Kings! Go!
