Journal entry April 16, 2018 San Jose Airport

Journal entry April 16, 2018 San Jose Airport [unedited]

It is so odd to take time out from the trajectory of every day in these journeys… to get off the tracks so to speak.  The experience both relaxes the brain, and creates unease.  You feel like you spend too much money and you are wondering about day to day reality, but you also give yourself to the situation and throw caution to the wind.  

Does it shake off the cobwebs?  This importance of eating well, looking at new things, and INPUT before gearing up to hustle when back home.  

But what if I RELAX into the RETURN as well?  NOT worry about it.  TRUST and FLOW and let the sand sift through the fingers?  Just release.  

Not only trust that others are allies, but that LIFE is an ALLY.

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.” – Seneca

Catacomb of Veils- Burning Man 2016, Part 4 of 4: The Scope

Part 4 of 4: THE SCOPE

Catacomb of Veils will be the largest art piece at Burning Man 2016 and one of the largest burned sculptures in the history of the event.

Everyone participating in the creation of Catacomb is all-volunteer with a commitment to the transformative power of temporary art.

Part 2: The Inspiration

Part 3: The Team

The profound beauty of the Catacomb of Veils is not only the design, the volunteers, the commitment, the structure itself- it is the TEMPORARY aspect of the project and of Burning Man itself.

It is there and then it is gone.

Burning Man 2016 takes place August 28 – September 5, 2016 in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Participants join in the effort to co-create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to art and community. [source]

Every year Black Rock City (the festival’s temporary town) becomes Nevada’s third biggest city.  Littering or leaving garbage (‘MOOP’) behind is Burner sacrilege.  Hundreds of volunteers spend the month after Burning Man meticulously combing the sand for MOOP (Matter Out Of Place). [source]

This is my favorite part of doing wheatpasting and street art- the TEMPORARY, THE EVOLUTION, THE RELEASE: once pasted, the piece evolves and deteriorates…

Nature and the elements and the interaction by the community has become essential to my creative process.

So the temporary aspect of Burning Man resonates as does the burn for I also LOVE to burn my art (which was easier when I lived on the Sunshine Coast)-

What does it mean to allow the BURN- to release?

Therein lies the SCOPE of the Catacomb of Veils.  

For me, it is about tears and grief, air and perspective, anger and earth, fire and release, allowing past and present and future to breathe.

Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean. – Maya Angelou

So I celebrate the incredible artistry and vision and hard work of Catacomb of Veils and its metaphoric POWER of BUILDING, WELCOMING COMMUNITY, INTERACTING and RELEASING!  And thus forever TRANSFORMING the participants…

I like to think of it as an opportunity for introspection and reflection, but ultimately the community will get to determine how it is. If it’s for ritual purposes, or for an introspective reflection, or a personal journey. It’s kind of not for me to decide… – Dan Sullivan

What does a day at the Catacomb of Veils build site feel like?  From our crack-of-dawn arrival at Pier70 and morning wood delivery, to pouring ourselves into creating art for our community…. the dedication, the love, the generosity.  We give our time and design expertise, but your donations make this happen. Every tax-deductible donation goes 100% to the materials, construction, transportation, insurance, and build-site rental for Catacomb.  This is our COMMUNAL EFFORT together — and *you* are central to making this happen. Catacomb of Veils

Part 2 of 4: THE INSPIRATION

As I mentioned in Part 1: The ProjectCatacomb of Veils speaks to my passion for the creative process- from the inspiration, to the idea, to the planning, to the development, to the implementation, to the product to the celebration to the release.

Graham Wallas, in The Art of Thoughtoutlined the 4 stages the creative process:

  1. Preparation: the problem is investigated in all directions as the thinker readies the mental soil for the sowing of the seeds.
  2. Incubation: no direct effort is exerted upon the problem at hand.
  3. Illumination: connections between the seemingly unconnected.
  4. Verification: testing the validity of the idea and reducing the idea itself to an exact form. [SOURCE]

And personally, research and inspiration (inspiration preceding and evolving out of research) are integral parts of each stage.  Inspiration is about ALLOWING the tangents.  Going along for the ride with eyes open wide.  Catacomb of Veils takes inspiration from the landscape itself.  And it inspires our own further research, helps us make connections, pulls out the past, brings us to the present, facilitates contemplation of the future, holds space to grieve, immerses us in magic and allows us to let go through temporary nature.

For example, let’s take a look at the word Catacombs.

Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 12.03.03 PM

What are they? Will investigating them enrich our understanding of the creative process of the Catacomb of Veils project?  Enrich our connection to it?  Where does your mind go as you get inspired by this project?

For me, this project is:

• approach,

• ascend,

• enter,

• descend,

• embrace,

• acknowledge,

• emerge,

• release.

Did something unexpected happen? Laura asked. #sfo #reflection

I had a wonderful conversation about my San Francisco trip today with my incredible friend, Laura Mack.  As always, she managed to ask powerful questions that nudge me to reflect.  Did anything happen during the trip that was unexpected?  Hmmm…

The art event was amazing- and not unexpected.

The street art filled my soul with glee- expected.

The photoshoots delighted- expected.

Friends, new and old, were amazing- expected.

San Francisco was a dreamland- expected.

Working on business with my daughter seamless and empowering- expected.

IMG_2913

But what was unexpected was my lack of anxiety.  What was unexpected was that I felt deserving of feeling good.

My journal entry on Noe Street, the Castro, San Francisco August 20, 2013 [unedited]:

IMG_3352

What is it like to wake up to a morning in SF with the place to myself?  My mind wants to wander to a place of anxiety- yet at the same time my heart feels strangely at peace.

TRUST is a word that comes up regularly in me.  I can and will trust that the flow I am feeling is the start of trust or the depths of trust or the familiarity of trust.  Have I actually ever felt the theme/emotion/state of trust?

IMG_3353

TRUST- definition:

trust- reliance, confidence, strength

I looked around the room last night, as Anna’s friends were bouncing off the ceiling and joyously sharing together, and was touched by how we find ourselves in this cottage apartment in the Castro because of our work together, because of my art.

IMG_3357

Is it hard to imagine because I do not allow myself to trust it?  Is it hard to allow myself to relax into it because I do not allow myself the time?  Is this trip about taking a break or stepping into it?

Such a fascinating time to simply let go of the old “unquiet heart” way of doing things and softening to accepting that I deserve this right now.

Is it hard to imagine because I don’t need to imagine it because I am already living it?!

Umm…it’s DECEMBER.  Can you believe??  We can’t.  So in order to deal with it, The Social Life is going to celebrate, and celebrate BIG!  We introduce to you the #24DaysofTSL.  Starting Dec 1 until Dec 24 we will be hosting a contest-per-day, featuring well known characters of the fashion industry in holiday form hand drawn by Kat Thorsen! Each day we’ll be giving away prizes from the cities of Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York!
