I am obsessed about the creative process, my process and the processes to others. What and/or how do we find ourselves at the keyboard, or armed with pencils, pens, paints, pull words and sounds from the wind.

I am obsessed about the creative process, my process, your process, and their processes. Tossing and turning in the process; deciding when I/we can live among people and when to live in silence.

I am obsessed with this creative process, I want to consume it , bathe in it, burrow deep in it, walk away from it and return to it.

I want to be obsessed.



I know the world is out there
my feet are unable to touch the ground



Now when I hear the clock tick,
I see stories not moments
