Working on an un-promised piece, there is room for the moment. It is a little more personal, a little less anticipatory. The secret is transforming the technical, pragmatic purposefulness into something visual appealing and inclusive. It opens up possibilities, a new adventure. It is unsure and unknown. It wraps around and embraces. It is work. A labor of love.

The lessons you are meant to learn are in your work. To see them, you need only look at the work clearly — without judgment, without need or fear, without wishes or hopes. Without emotional expectations. Ask your work what it needs, not what you need. Then set aside your fears and listen, the way a good parent listens to a child.
