The gospel according to the moment is a fine idea. He who lives not in the past but in the hearing of every church bell or every cock crow is truly blessed. Now I suppose we can turn that into a social media metaphor too, for I have been more or less absent from it for a week now. And it feels good, particularly avoiding Instagram and Facebook. Ebay and Vinted have kind of replaced them as I’ve been selling a lot of items but that’s ok. Time consuming but ok. I know I’ll have to get back to using it and I do have some new content to post, but it is a bullshit world, full of fakery.
I’ve written that many times, and will again, it’s like I need to coax myself into doing it. Goad myself, trick myself even into thinking it’s doing any good. I’ll do one tonight, maybe the one of the mountain and the moon and I’ll do a t-shirts one tomorrow. The problem is that it takes you out of the moment. You’re no longer living in that moment if you’re distracted by someone’s deliberate attempt to capture your attention. Surely our work should be placed in a better environment than that? Look at me it says, choose me over all else and I’ll bend over backwards to get you to do it. For five seconds. Shite.
