I’m clawing my way back from maternity leave and it can be tough to believe I still have a brain sometimes. Or at least the kind of brain I need to switch on again (because maternity leave brain is a multitasking wonder). I’ve always been impatient, but I wonder if our culture of hyper-immediacy diminishes still further our capacity for practice and resolve. The long game still matters, and a little calm and time to put first a toe in, then a foot, and so on is probably okay when it comes to getting back to whatever important work you’re/I’m doing.
Of course, this poster is really for people more immersed in creative arts than me, so for all you writers and artists out there, this one’s for you (via Hugh ... and Ira).
