Rabbit holes

There is a popular place that artists cannot resist. It makes us all excited and optimistic. So much to explore, so much to experience. The promise of something novel, something unique, something special.

Yes, it’s the rabbit hole.

Sometimes we end up so deep in one, that we lose sight of why we entered in the first place. It is the Mecca of overwhelm, the priory of confusion, and a place so deep under the area of work we seek to do, that no hope emerges back out from it.

The rabbit hole is where procrastination lives, excuses roam and hope gets a plastic face lift. It is not where healthy, productive artists frequent.

The rabbit hole is an escape. Go there for fun. But if you have work to do, leave it.
