The force of my creative routine holds me up and earns me access to the wholesome early mornings as well as the restful, earned evenings. I love that all I have to do is show up at the same time every day, and the rest unfolds from momentum of what's already been set in place.

I used to see routine as rigid, mindless repetition that shrinks dynamism away but I've come to realize that it can be forgiving, deliberate, and supportive too. It has dominion over bothersome mental pets and discreetly handles the small decisions of willpower that would otherwise chip away at my day. 

Captured here is the sun both rising on the terrain to be travelled today, and setting on the terrain to be travelled tomorrow. The liberation is that the scenery changes, but the landscape stays the same. I don't add any value to my art by rushing through one project to get to the next because navigating a creative routine feels exactly the same no matter which artwork I'm making my way through.

The compositional details vary, but being attached to the process more than the product means that I am more receptive to the joys a cycle brings. I don't have to be in a rush to anywhere and that's the greatest freedom discipline affords me.
