May 3, 2020- How to change disappointment into motivation and action

Hello May,

I woke up with the best intentions, walked by myself, had coffee, and then it hit me: a negative answer from a publisher on a piece of work. A piece I have worked and worked over for several years.

Not to mention, it has been rejected a few times.

I can’t describe my feelings. Anger, he doesn’t understand, feeling miserable for myself, here is where I ended with all these rejections… more general statements about my life etc.

Then, I thought: let’s change that.

Indeed, I need to do something differently.

To begin with, to tell myself: I DESERVE THE BEST IN LIFE, as everybody else.

Why?

Try, why not?

Planet Earth is bountiful.

So, second step: I need help. Let’s go around and ask for some.

Let’s identify people who could help me.

Then, get some chocolate.

And also, think whether there is a better strategy.

There is something simple which could be done in a different way.

Something which is related to the packaging.

And let’s dance a bit!

And let’s also do something I like a lot, like, write a new poem

May 2, 2020- How to stay Open-minded in lockdown- Josef Albers

Hello May,

how do we stay OPEN in lockdown? Artwork, could be the answer! This is the work “Open” by Josef Albers from the free online collection of the Guggenheim museum. Let’s take a walk there.

Saturday almost morning, and after my second coffee and finding the right recipe for lunch, I get back to a busy weekend. I am going to mark some papers, so all my attention and focus is needed.

Have a nice Saturday also, whatever you do!
