Find something difficult to break your brain over. Something that makes you squirm and want to leave and too hot and want to run away. Something that makes you say “I’ll never be any good at this”. See if you can be with it even when it makes you question your firmly held truths about the world. I’m conducting an experiment in awkwardness and expression in a way that doesn’t come naturally to me at all. Sometimes it makes my brain ache. Sometimes it makes me laugh at myself and the other people around. I’ll get back to you when I know the answer. Until then I’ll be rewiring synapses and burning out neurons.
