Expanding Time

Work while you dream and dream while you work.

Heard of that ancient form of recording called an eight track tape? Everyone has a eight track mind. Think of all the things you can do at the same time, walking and chewing gum just too name two.

Imagine the creative mind is currents of imagination in an ocean of dreams. You don't need drugs to see the currents. You don't need to stave yourself to find that place or go without sleep to know a fragment of the infinite. You just open your mind to the imaginary and leave the known behind.

My mind is a three ring circus, the artist, the writer and the blur between the two. Every waking moment I'm thinking about how I'm going to do my corner of the impossible.

"Robert you never finish anything."

Not true and I have posts to prove it.

"Robert that project too big and you'll never perfect it."

I have no desire to perfect anything as I don't believe in perfect.

"Robert you should work on our project and forget your unrealistic project."

Sorry I don't work for free and tearing down someones dream to build your own is a ugly thing to do.

By just saying no to artistic parasites you can expand your time.

Then there is the magical imagination way of expanding time.
Edit reality by putting what troubles you into the negative zone. Sometimes I'm very depressed and I put my troubles into the negative zone and lock them away for ten billion years. I force myself to write or do artwork and pretend to be happy and sometimes I forget I'm depressed and can't even remember what I locked away for ten billion years.

Multiple thinking is a way I work on at least three projects at any one time. As I'm writing this posts I'm thinking about three other projects. My grandfather tales children book, My fantasy novel and a Science Fiction Graphic Novel. Then there is sign post projects that I think about only for a short time when other projects spark a new concept.

When I do work on a project it is a fast process because I've done the hard work in my mind.

I really resonate with your words here today. Always I look forward to reading your words no matter what the subject. This post made me smile. You know what they say, imagination is everything. And time, well that's just an illusion.

To Earth Heart

I truly wonder if time is an illusion. Imagination is everything to me.

My next post will be about one of the weirdest things to ever happen to me in a very strange life.

The time I slowed down time and saved my own life by way of a comic book.
