What we ask before every creative project
Hi Jeff. Welcome to Substack. It's a lovely place to be. I'm coming up for my one year anniversary of writing a weekly newsletter here. What's this is a great question to ask. My response and motto this year has been, "I don't know but let's try it and see what happens."
Looking forward to more Jeff – can't wait to see how this develops :)
Man, that one got me! (Do I say that for all your articles?) I don't know, but that was just a beautiful work of art. I've been in those canyons of Utah and know what you mean. Curiosity is powerful. What an awesome picture! That became so relevant in the end. Yes, I have that creative tug. I don't hear it all the time, but your message right here has reminded me to listen. And listen more intently. Thank you again, Jeff. This word gig you have is really making a difference. Keep at it!
THIS!! This is everything I have been thinking, feeling, agonizing over for the past year. I don’t know where I’m going, but now I know, I’m not alone in the universe. Thank you for capturing “this” and pinning it to paper.
A long exhale. That's the gift this post gives. Because I get It ... whatever "It" is. ; )
"If you know this longing I speak of, the unquenchable thirst for the end, the desire to know what all This is, then…
Thanks for the welcome Jeff.
Happy to follow you here Jeff, you have long been an inspiration. I love your authenticity and willingness to invite the reader to become a part of the journey. I am not yet familiar with Substack but, thank goodness I couldn't highlight all the parts of the above which really resonated as I read. I would have left it a complete mess! Thank you, Merry Christmas and best wishes to you and yours xx
You're a genius and a true artist, Jeff. Thank you for this, and welcome.
Explained so much. I’ve always known I’m not alone…I’m absolutely tickled to know how big my tribe has just become. 😎😎😎😎😎
What a great write up Jeff ✍️
Mystics & Artists learn to tread the path despite The fear of unknown imo .
I get it. For a lack of words, you described it beautifully. Welcome to the mist. You are among friends.
Good to see you here, Jeff! PEACE!
Welcome , my friend! Good to see you here.
A long exhale. That's what this post gives. Because I get It ... whatever "It" is. ; )
So freaking good! I could relate to that wonder and seeking and being set free to allow mystery and enjoy the unfolding. I loved your waterfall moment. I’ve had those kinds of moments, too.
Also, seeing you say goodbye to your blog and start fresh on this platform gave me permission to do the same. Well, I’d already said goodbye to the blog, but hadn’t found a way to keep sharing my writing until I came across your last blog post.
I’m at that very same crossroads with writing and all the selling and marketing , algorithms and search engines, social media and influencing. I couldn’t remain consistent because playing other people’s games, running on hamster wheels and selling my soul just felt so off for me. I crave authenticity and simplicity. So here I am, getting ready to start fresh on Substack.
Thanks for exploring this particular trail so I may follow.
