On a roll, or rather a foam roller, this week. Amid discussion of ungulates, Merlin-worship and being too old for music festivals, Toni and Mike address why our best thinking happens in the shower, capturing ideas, the tyranny of systems that prioritize busywork over real work, perfectionism, and refilling the well. Phew!
An episode about paying attention, whether it be through poetry, creative nonfiction, or to time. Also, romantic gestures ("artistic" or otherwise), not knowing what shape your endeavors will take, & answers to listener questions about taking control of your schedule & making time for family dinners.
Toni and Mike tackle the fun in frightening grandparents and revisit losing before exploring autonomy and respect, inertia, assumptions, making the time to practice a craft, and seeing things for what they really are instead of what you think they might be. It's a good one!
