firecrackers

Everywhere: and a tale of internal fireworks

I gave it up some years ago: linear thinking and the pursuit of perfection. 

I swapped it for this:  free association and the pursuit of just good. 

I think it’s too easy, too easy to get stuck.  Stuck in the same place.  Stuck doing the same thing. Caught up in a routine of the same job, the same people, the same place, the same experience.  Caught up in a loop that goes round and round....

People ask me how I do all the things that I do.  All the different jobs.  Building houses, decorating rooms, writing a blog, running Peacock Pavilions, sourcing for Red Thread Souk, throwing dinner parties, writing books, taking pictures, starting a non-profit, doing humanitarian aid, and traveling the world.  And yes, with a family and yes, with a base in Marrakesh. 

How do I do it?  Well, first of all, I have help.  And second of all, I accept that  things are going to be far from perfect.  But I am not afraid of failure -- I am afraid of not trying.

You see, I hold tightly to a wish….a wish that my life be like a fire cracker:  sparkling, sparkling in every direction, lighting up the night sky.   I want a life that’s ever changing.  I want a life that's no, no, never the same.
