I AM PAINT
by George Allen Durkee


 

I am paint. Some days the stuff just runs out of me. I get into an easy rhythm when I paint daily. 

But when I stop for a week or more, I am clumsy.

The way beyond my awkwardness is through it. So I need to be willing to paint a bad painting, or several, until the oils flow again. I imagine it's the same for musicians, athletes and people who arrange flowers.

If I need  a particular outcome, I try too hard. Better when I simply allow the work to unfold in the way it will, allow myself to be what I am in this moment, or on this particular day. And I am paint.
