206/365 – A Black Book.
I’m not as scared by a blank page as much as I am by a black one.
A white page is scary because it often seems hard or impossible to fill, but at least is a source of possibilities and options.
A black page (or a black book) doesn’t allow possibilities to even show up! And that’s not what I look for when creating…The black book is a collection of don’ts and by definition negative approaches; it doesn’t help coming up with an idea or a solution. The black book doesn’t even show the words, you can’t read them, it isn’t transparent nor friendly…
When creating all we need is a white book full of space and hope. The black book of things that we can’t make happen just shouldn’t show up and it will never be one of my choices.
