Though it may be a bit early for any kind of new year resolutions, I have decided to award myself a credits’ system to organize my day a bit better.
My credits will be divided by work, pleasure, duty, relax. So the idea is that each day I try to do at least a small portion of each of these four areas. If one day I miss out on the pleasure, I can just put a point for that forward to the next day (or whenever suits me best) and take it off the area which got a double (or more) helping of credits. Which means that if one day I spend more time working, I can just award myself more pleasure the next day. Not sure if that is clear – and maybe my calculations are a bit askew, but you probably know what I mean!
When you buy something from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experiments. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not only buying a thing, but a piece of heart, a part of the soul, a moment in the life of someone.
