It continues to surprise me how long it takes to create a context while breathing life into the content of this project and journey. I never assumed it would be easy, but I didn’t appreciate how complicated and difficult it would be at times. Part of that is continuing to imagine and see the bigger picture while simultaneously organizing and giving life to the smallest of details. Another thing is having a clear vision of where all this is going while at the same time being open and prepared for surprises and detours along the way.
It has been important to put together a team of people who have talents and expertise that help make this possible. They are good people doing good work.
There is a part of me that has always been a little anxious and eager to please. While I need to remember and respect those parts of myself it has been important to find ways and reasons to relax in all of this and to be satisfied with both the process and the product no matter what anyone else might say.
