Some assembly required

Grant yourself the superpower of making “art” wherever you go and see how that changes what you perceive. Art is everywhere if you say so.*
(Rob Walker)

In a word: one ought to turn the most extreme possibility inside oneself into the measure for one’s life, for our life is vast and can accommodate as much future as we are able to carry.**
(Rainer Maria Rilke)

Each day comes to us requiring effort on our part to make it complete.

I don’t mean as far as the universe is concerned, but from our perspective, as conscious beings creating meaning.

The day can be what we want it to be.

I found myself wondering whether joy is another word for what Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi identified as flow, when we lose awareness of self and are one with what it is we are doing, with the thing that brings our talents, values and energies together in the gift we want to bring into the world.

I think what this day needs is some of your joy.
