as age creeps up

so does self-awareness &

as self-awareness taps one’s shoulder

so comes the cloak of

scrutiny---

meticulous, unrelenting,

self-scrutiny,

floods into focus &

begins to complicate

every

move,

with a kind of idiosyncratic meddling

that never seemed to bother a person

before,

but now, now

it is all that one can bear---

every action gets questioned &

based on its merit in the

past, present & future,

it may never get put into motion---

with all occurrences in one’s life

being brought down under the

microscope,

to say that this way of living is a bit

ridiculous, would be more than an

understatement.

 

stepping away from such overthinking

does not mean that one loses focus altogether

but rather that pushing all frivolous matters aside

takes the forefront &

unthinking prevails,

as an artist does when the concept of “play”

consumes all their energy, as opposed to

reducing one’s actions to deadlines,

profit & “proper etiquette” in the field of one’s

choice---

finding a way to

end worries about the conclusion of efforts &

stir up fun in the moment

is the way to go,

a policy of broad strokes

with the basis of experience &

prior knowledge,

seems to be an appropriate strategy

to rid the mind of the cumbersome nature of

thinking too much.
