I am so often interrupted that when I am not interrupted, it is a novel sensation. What is this feeling? A gradual expansiveness of the mind, stretching (painfully, because it's unused to it) beyond what's immediate and distracting. I need to learn how to use that creatively, rather than dissolve in daydreaming. Heed Agnes Martin's advice: "If during the day you can keep from intellectualising your life and keep from dreams, you will double your possibility of being inspired. You will then move forward very quickly. It is commonly believed that accomplishment follows dreams. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those who dream dream and those who can act are active. The pretence of children is not a dream. They are playing and they know it."
