Had evening coffee with a friend. Great time talking and looking over our little neighborhood lake.

After lots of conversation we got to the heart of a certain matter and ended with this question:

“How would this change if you could think about it without the expectations?”

We were talking about a specific scenario, but I can see where it applies to my art, my pages and pockets of my life. Sometimes we have to cut loose from the expectaions surrounding a situation in order to see/solve it.

Expectations {my own perfectionistic ideals or those of others} often cloud. Tonight, coffee and ripples on the water helped clear the view.
