313/365 – State Of Alert.
Creating is about being aware. It is indeed about being able to notice what is around and what needs to emerge.
I notice that my own creative process goes through phases of focus and uncertainty and I need to be in a status of alert all the time to be able to capture the right signal.
Sometimes alerts are there for us to notice the obvious, to remind us what we give for granted, to support in absence of focus and attention. We need to be careful in not ignoring those signals and keep them tight and close: look at them, listen to them, highlight them in our memory.
