To create

It's no accident that this morning I shared the Seth Godin quote.

It's a favourite of mine as is his book, Linchpin.

For the record, yesterday's post, Timeless, wasn't just an echo of my creative life, it represented everything that I'm of and about these days. In putting it out there, I suppose, in a way, I wanted to correct (in my mind at least) any misunderstanding there might be aporpos of me being a writer and anything resembling such a literal interpretation of the word. 

On reflection, and having slept on things, where does that leave me, even allowing for the fact that I'm still a lawyer and I expect for that to be part of my life, not necessarily the current iteration, for a while longer?

Well, rather than reverting to labels or the like, why I don't I just say I create...stuff? Yes, currently, it's mostly online — meaning, it's in writing and a few audio recordings (video isn't really my thing) — but at least I'm doing something. OK, it's a bit more than that but I'm showing up and that feels important.

Sorry, that sounds smug but you hopefully know what I'm getting at.
