yes, I am out of bed, not at 5.30 as I intended, but at 8.30. And at 11.00 I am still on my coffee time and I am feeling kind of numb. But still, I have already taken a walk.
My neighbour at the cafe has a beautiful notebook, it’s from Argentina. Full of the characters of Liners, an Argentinian artist.
All you can do when you want to take your time.
In Harry Potter, Hermione is given a gift where she can stretch time and clone herself to do many different tasks in parallel universes.
So, let’s see what I would do if I had three selves to perform my tasks.
My first self, would get out of London, to the country side. May be close to the sea, Brighton? but something at 1.30 distance max by train. This self would go there with friends. No, better, this self would go to a type of retreat and spa, with some kind of loose activities and at the same time. This self, would go there with a friend/or romantic interest, and would eat the best food in the area. So, this self, would get back refreshed in mind, body, etc.
The second self, would sleep and then meet with friends or call up those I would like to talk to and see how they are doing. This self would probably go for shopping and would check how clothes fit with one another. She would buy an art book if she doesn’t feel like running to an exhibition.
The third self, would be work focused. She would finish a draft of her project and she would send it to someone to review it by tonight.
Now, somehow, I am my third self, with some wishes from the two others. At least I could identify those two.
Can I satisfy everyone?
In a way, I need to find a compromise.
The busy self, will not move, unless the other two are somehow taken care of.
So, I went for a walk, I looked around.
I will paint later today.
