Constance Spry on ‘artistic’ people wanting to learn to arrange flowers…
“Quickness and a sure hand are far more useful, for an eye can be trained more readily than a character changed.”
.
A sure hand? Isn’t that just the crux of it! How does one become sure? .
Practice. For the record, when I do up one of these follies I’m very quick, too quick. The kind of ram-it-in and if it doesn’t work yank or cut it out kind of quick. I’m experimenting, but also conscious that I’m ‘doing it for the image’ and that feels lesser somehow because I am haunted by the words of a famous designer I once heard say: ‘I never design for Instagram’. Sigh. I do, I love making pictures, particularly when beauties come back to me after being on the job and still have life in them. I live in a floral vacuum for months of the year. What there is I use, and use again.
.
So practice: One step forward, two steps back. And quite literally too: look through the camera, dive back into the arrangement, tweak, and back to the lens. With practice, I can bang out an image from inception to edited in under an hour. But this week I’ve started following @annstreetstudio and have been riveted by her process (detailed divinely in stories). And I have been filled with awe and envy: imagine taking that time for one’s art?! Imagine being an artist like that?! Imagine the patience! Can a character like mine be changed?
.
In the dark of December I have a wish: to have a studio or a space with access to a flower market so that I might create art in the winter. Bigger wish? To count myself as an artist. To give myself that time and space.

We are back!!! The beauty in constructive silence is that afterwards, there are a lot of incredible stuff to be said. Ask Maya Angelou!!! 2016 was a hot mess for me and I decided that 2017 would be different. One year later, I have been stretched in ways I thought impossible and tasted life in its most exotic flavours. I have experienced major changes in career, launched projects and killed them, read over 30 books, consumed over 130 transformational multimedia resources, learned from world-class coaches, written a memoir (don't wait up for publishing just yet), written more poetry, had major breakdowns, made fantastic memories etc.

I have risen in my level of consciousness. However, I've also learned that clarity is not as romantic as we envisage it to be and growth doesn't always align with what you imagine it to be.

Having interacted with hundreds of brilliant people this year, I can say that there's more commonality in our humanity than you can imagine. Hence, I've decided to share some of my most compelling experiences in 2017 through a series on the blog titled "Journey to the Centre of Yourself". This will transcend self awareness, mental patterns, career, startups and life in between, as I experienced it.
