Where are you?
Just a few weeks ago: I’m sitting on the floor of an empty studio, barefoot, with not a piece of furniture in it. Boxes line the hallways and two giant moving trucks are parked out in the street. Every so often our dogs bark, whining about being pent up in the back. We’re sleeping on the carpet floor for two nights without beds. I have an interview scheduled and I’ve hidden in the bathroom to talk from my laptop to make this happen. Right now, we’re in limbo.
I ask if we can not skype — video is probably not the best medium at the moment, although I’m happy to talk — and our interview accidentally goes to video. I laugh, and I tell my story: “I’m sitting on a floor right now, chatting at you while all the furniture is being taken out of my house … mind if we switch to audio only? Otherwise you’ll have me sitting on a floor in my yoga pants!”
Let’s stop imaginging the pretend perfect circumstances that might have maybe led to the possibility of your wildest dreams, and get real about the fact they haven’t happened yet. You are here. You are what you are.
Start where you are. Right here. Right now.
