You Have to Start Somewhere
(original post from SunMoonStars May 1, 2011)
So here is the beginning as it was, oh ha, as it was in the beginning...
I want to work slowly this time. It is almost funny to look back like this, not at the class itself, but back in time, how it all was when I was doing this. So much has changed. But the content still stirs me and reinforces the idea of the multiple ways we always have, to just go. The kind Man here was doing the videos back then. He spent so much time for me. Learning and doing. (Even creating music) So I could imagine all this. And just kind of go. I learned through watching him, to do it myself. But really he loves the technology thing as much as I love cloth. He has more patience and love for all that. He stayed up all night making that feather move across the screen, because I said What If?
So slower. There are 29 lesson (not really that) posts in the original class. It was really about a post a day for a month. More or less real time. I want to take each one. Post again, reconsider, rework, expand. Make some new work along side the old. Change my mind. Direction, maybe. Explain more. Connect dots past and present. Maybe a week or two between the original posts. With all the other stuff presented in between. Let each bit of it become more. Because thought is not a thing. It is a process.
The journal pictures from the original post were saved in a smaller format and do not expand when clicked. The big ones are on an external drive somewhere. Instead of trying to find them, I think I will find the original scraps of paper. Or redraw them, rethink them. Add them to my Loose Page thing.
I've already got my eye on that stray beast below the sun moon stars. But I am going to start with Nine. Just that.
Space is Place. Place is context. Context is setting. Story changes with context. Story is a kind of PlaceKeeping. Start where you are. SomeWhere. Where is like a place and a question at the same time.
