Confessional 23: Rest is More


1. I feel exponentially better when I wake up before 9am.

2. There are conditions to the statement above.

3.Cold showers almost always induce arousal rather than lull my libido.

4. I miss certain people every week.

5. There are days when I fantasize of hopping a train, plane, or nearest mule…and finding somewhere remote to live for a few months.

6.  There are times when taking calligraphy seems like a good idea.

7. These times are not often.

8. Whenever I’m not working there is an underlying fear that this free time will be found out and forcibly taken from me.

9.  Last week I took my first real Sabbath in months and it was glorious.

10. It was also difficult.


Confessional #13: Incremental Future

  1. Every time I don’t give a dollar (or 5 or 10) to someone on the subway I become less inclined to give to the next person on the subway.
  2. Every time I objectify a woman by judging her by her appearance it makes it easier to objectify another woman.
  3. Every time I fail to actively listen to someone it becomes more difficult to actively listen in my next conversation.
  4. Every time I fail to honor the Sabbath and take a full day off to rest, I decrease my ability to rest at any time.
  5. Every time I stop myself from criticizing a customer, it makes it easier to love them.
  6. Every time I encourage a fellow artist, I become more content with my own level of success.
  7. Every time I make time for someone, I find that I have more time for myself than before.
  8. Every time I exert myself physically, it makes my next exertion easier.
  9. Every time I eat vegetables, the more I crave vegetables.
  10. Every time I finish a project (or blog, or post…), it becomes to easier to begin another.
