How to do this?

A big question - how to do this?elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I know it can be done, but

I can do this,elsa - word, story, image idea music person
but it takes a lot of doing.

It's easiest in the morning. elsa - word, story, image idea music person
Everything seems possible then.


What do you see when
you see me, I wonder.elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I keep trying. I'm not sure
what will happen. But over
and over again, I keep
trying - because something
in me doesn't give up, not
forever anyway.

Elsas Creativity Blog: don’t bite off more than you can chew,
but over and over, my dreams do. My dreams and I. Long deep sleeps
as I face trying to make real my creative dreams.

APRIL 8 , 2007


That's what was on my mind this morning - and I almost sat down and wrote about this in everyday words. But another voice inside me came up with the start of a song, a word piece, and that's what I went with.


My dreams and I
     The sky's not half as high
           as the height they would fly
               if I try
                     or so it seems
                         just one more try
               if I dare
               if I care
               if I try
                         one more try

My dreams and I

I bite
     more than I can chew      MORE

That's something I often do. I rarely, in my hopes and dreams, come up with tiny morsels, little tiny things easy to achieve. There are lots of smaller things, easy to do - songs, and so on, lots of writing, images. But then, to try to find a space in the world for those things, I'm stuck with loads to do that just doesn't come easily for me.

And now, having written the piece, uploaded it even, I am back here, with everyday words, and my current reality. Ahead of me is something huge:

I'm getting ready to take on more of what I've started - more dreams that haven't made it to fulfillment.

I've slept long and hard these last couple of nights. Exhaustion. Maybe it's a coincidence. Maybe there's a connection. I don't know. But I know I feel bogged down - before starting - by all the work ahead, work I couldn't complete when I started, years ago, before despite trying.

I have, from about five years ago, a bunch of Flash files - a number of them meant for a major project: In My Own, My Chosen Home, explorations of what it means to be at home. (Flash, for people not familiar with the term, is a web design program where there can be movement, animation, video, etc.) The most ambitious undertaking, in those files, is Summer's Passion - whoops, typo - I meant to type, Summer's Passing.

Summer's Passing - a lot of passion went into getting that done for a deadline, a grant application that resulted in yet one more rejection. There was work left to do on Summer's Passing, and the whole Chosen Home project would have been much more work. All of it was put aside in the rush of life and the tide of events, and in the hope that there would be funding.

Now I am coming back to those Flash files and, with that, to one of my many dreams.

Don't bite off more than you can chew. I've heard that over and over. But what is "more than you can chew"? We can't know in advance all the time. Columbus would never have gotten to America if he'd listened to that - and the world might have been a better place for the natives of North America, at least for a while, if he'd stayed home.

Today I've felt on two sides - one the one side, ready to go ahead, and in my head imagining things already worked out - and on the other side, weighed down by the mass of things to do, things hard to do, skills needed, resources needed. One big help, Mark Corwin - very much part of Summer's Passing and other projects. In fact, it was his electroacoustic piece that sparked the words which led to everything else with Summer's Passing.

But that is an aside. The big thing. Trying to turn dreams into realities. Not easy when the dreams are big, when I don't happen to have made my way yet to quite the right place (scary all that searching, reaching), and when there are lots of other time demands.

But I know my dreams are calling out loud and clear - help, we need help, come help. Elsa, come on, it's time.

As always, welcome into my world.
