Last night I checked in at Elsewhere. It was a delightful surprise and overwhelming all at once. I got upstairs to my suite and realized what a gift and a perfect fit this space is for me and my little introvert heart. I get to spread out a bit and have some privacy, too. And when I'm ready I can head downstairs and connect with my awesome residency-mates: Rose and Jeane.
Now that my supplies have arrived this morning, I'm excited and nervous to get started. Before he left today, Matt said something I want to carry with me in this month: don't produce anything, but create everything you want. Sweet and gentle reminder that my job here is to explore, not to manufacture art.
Jesus, help me to remain in this space with you, remembering to create with you. I believe this is good and possible, help my unbelief.
