On a week of no-ego
It’s not yet time to fully explain, or maybe even understand, all that was stirred up and sent out during the week on Dartmoor with Positive Light Projects. One of the most simple truths, though, is how grounding an ego-less, collaborative, discovery-heavy practice can be. In a world (face-to-face and digital) of capitalism, glitz, glamour, climb-to-the-top-of-the-ladder, and competitive markets (also capitalism?…I’m sensing a theme), the very fabric of community, ecology of self and nature, and craft seem easy to obliterate. How does one work through this? Dropping out is fine, but in isolation, nothing is made that much more pure. I would never have known about this residency/workshop except for a chain of events brought about by a friend, a podcast, and an Instagram account. I’m left with the desire to keep moving slowly, intentionally with my own practice for refinement, but also to save what is left of that quiet space inside of me where everything true and right stems from.
I am so very thankful to have learned from, discussed and worked with some truly beautiful people. So I’ll leave some memories and work made here as an archive.
