Giving Time to Twitter

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 9.59.41 AMSometimes we do things without fully knowing where they will lead us, but we do them anyway! Maybe we’re curious, maybe we’re adventurous, or maybe we’re a little bit of both!

For me, as an artist, doing is what leads to the knowing. Doing is how I learn and how I figure things out. It’s inherently that way for everyone, but sometimes we get bogged down by all the things we have to “do” that it’s not fun – because no matter what it is…doing anything (even brushing your teeth) takes time!

After nearly 3 years of “doing” twitter, it’s starting to make sense to me. I thoroughly enjoy seeing what I can discover from the individuals and ideas I encounter. For me, twitter operates like a Law of the Universe. Energy attracts energy, and connections are made by what we give and what we seek.

When we switch our thinking from what time takes, to what time gives, everything seems to fall into place. I enjoy giving twitter a little bit of my time, I always get something interesting in return.
