Beyond the laptop

Slow Cooked Beef Winter Stew: Part TwoImage by jennifermackenziejones via Flickr

This morning, in three hours, I knocked out three big projects. The deadline had been looming on my calendar for weeks while I did various other things; dawdled, drank coffee, mused, and cooked.

Any creative person will tell you that good work requires cooking time; not just the years spent training, but the days spent cooking; observing, thinking, reading, free-associating. All of it goes into the pot where it simmers and stews, until finally, the cream rises.

The work gets done.
