It keeps going on. I stand in front of a drawing, or a painting; the process takes over. Phooo... that's it! I show up. The process takes over. I get what I get. Showing up, as Woody Allen has said, is 80% of the process. It seems Woody did not mean it exactly as I am using it (see two Woody Allen quotes at end of today's post).
"I made the statement years ago which is often quoted that 80 percent of life is showing up. People used to always say to me that they wanted to write a play, they wanted to write a movie, they wanted to write a novel, and the couple of people that did it were 80 percent of the way to having something happen. All the other people struck out without ever getting that pack. They couldn’t do it, that’s why they don’t accomplish a thing, they don’t do the thing, so once you do it, if you actually write your film script, or write your novel, you are more than half way towards something good happening. So that I was say [sic] my biggest life lesson that has worked. All others have failed me."
