Vita Brevis

Not to long ago, I wrote a post entitled ‘Art is Long‘. I referenced the Hippocrates quote “Ars longa,vita brevis,occasio praeceps,experimentum periculosum,iudicium difficile.”

I have a confession.  I get wound up and stressed out by the daily minutia. I tell myself I’m going to put my best duck forward and let it all roll off my back.

(snort)

Whether you believe there is something after this life or not, mortality is short. I’m stressing out about things I can’t control.  Which, in turn, muffles my creative voice.

I am officially giving myself a swift kick in the pants.

Life is short. I have things to do. I’m going to sit back and let myself have a mental vacation and daydream.  The rest? It’s stuff that needs to be done. but really doesn’t need all that much brain power.

  • Keep dreaming, my friend. 🙂

    • Always do! 🙂

  • Sunny day — go sleep in a puddle of sunlight. Rainy day — go curl up in bed. Sleep is the answer to everything! ;p

    • Lazy days, the perfect way to make the brain be happy!
