Some days must feel more unusual and surprising than they do ritual. I’ve turned down the volume a little and have dedicated my time over the last few months to purely work that has called me to stretch, push, break down, pick up, and humble myself before a dizzying array of social dynamics in ways I do not yet and may never have words to paint. I’m feeling a bit numb right now – to the success and failure, to what the work is giving and what it’s taking away. Regardless, I’m certain the impact of it all is positively permanent, and that the excruciating and thrilling days are teaching me something. I must follow through by working smarter and staying humble. For now I’m just feeling the moment, and the moment isn’t good nor bad. The moment just is.
