Missing the beanbags & outdoor work spaces of Tulum, though grateful that Calgary is FORTY degrees warmer this week than last week. In honour of this thaw, we hereby emerge from a cave of duvets 🙏 #Working #TBT #Tulum #Mexico #Read #Write #Work #Chihuahua ...

“...What is to be done with the resulting impulses, these nerve endings flickering like an illuminated map of thieving constellations? The stars pulse. The muse seeks to be vivified. But the mind is also the muse. It seeks to outsmart its glorious opponents, to rewire such sources of inspiration. A crystal stream suddenly dried. A thing of beauty joyless, defiled. Why does the creative spirit turn on itself? Why does the maker twist all drama? The pen is lifted, guided by the shattered muse.” — Patti Smith

“Inspiration is the unforeseen quantity, the muse that assails at the hidden hour. The arrows fly and one is unaware of being struck, and that a host of unrelated catalysts have joined clandestinely to form a system of its own, rendering one with the vibrations of an incurable disease—a burning imagination.” — from Devotions by Patti Smith

Last night I started packing a suitcase that I left open-faced & half finished on the floor next to Lulu’s carry bag (because of course she is coming). At 3 a.m. I woke up to rustling sounds & found her climbing into her carrier! I wonder if she’d had a bad dream of being left behind? #OverAnalyzing #TravelDog #Anticipation #TakeMeWithYou #TravellingChi #MyHeart ...
