I've been thinking about the Tamagotchi Gesture for something or other to do with work.
I like the thought that 'by adding something that requires care and concentration we are nourished'.
That's so important in a world that's all about now, instant gratification and disposability.
I guess that's the point of making tea in the pot, or cooking properly rather than zapping something in a microwave.
It's also the point of swimming everyday. I can't find a better word that 'realness', 'being present'.
Anyway, funny how stuff that slows you down actually makes you better. That's why i reject computer mind-maps and planning as a linear process.
There's something about the squeak of marker on a letraset, or scratching away on a Moleskin that just works better. Maybe it's arranging post it notes on a board, but an organic, slightly chaotic process requires organic tools. And don't pretend planning isn't chaotic and hit and miss please, you know process is only there to justify fees and create the illusion of predictability....
