what i learned from the blank canvas assignment:
did i finish my harp composition? i’m sad to report that i did not. i started off strong, in fact, i was very pleased with my work for the first two days of the assignment. then, something happened: i stopped showing up to work.
despite my failure to complete, or perhaps my success at maintaining the “blankness of my canvas”, i learned something important from the assignment this week: when i don’t take the time to do my work i am only hurting myself. does anyone really care that i didn’t complete the assignment? the answer is no, not really. do i care? yes. and although it is sad and scary (perhaps even terrifying) to admit this, there are not an infinite amount of tomorrows left.
when am i going to “get serious”? when are you? hopefully not tomorrow because, as one of my favorite musicians, janis joplin, so wisely stated, “tomorrow never happens, man…”
