"It's not just the number of hours we're working, but also the fact that we spend too many continuous hours juggling too many things at the same time.
What we've lost, above all, are stopping points, finish lines and boundaries. Technology has blurred them beyond recognition. Wherever we go, our work follows us, on our digital devices, ever insistent and intrusive. It's like an itch we can't resist scratching, even though scratching invariably makes it worse." -- Tony Schwartz
"You wander from room to room
Hunting for the diamond necklace
That is already around your neck!" -- Rumi

EVERYTHING is about creativity right now. Everything is pushing me in certain directions, in places where I must look UP instead of DOWN. There is drive, somedays -- not every day -- but my goal is to appreciate both kinds of days. Ones which fulfill me with material, tangible results, and ones where my mind and soul has been replenished with nothingness (as nothingness is also quite its opposite, fullness).
