Create to let go
Icarus was reading this morning and found this great OP-ED article by David Brooks. It really gave him some things to think about.
“… it is possible to achieve momentary harmony through creative work. Max has all his Wild Things at peace when he is immersed in building a fort or when he is giving another his complete attention. This isn’t the good life through heroic self-analysis but through mundane, self-forgetting effort, and through everyday routines.”
Icarus has to agree with this analysis. When there is too much going on and too many things he cannot control it is time to create. Time to step back and focus on something other then the fall.
