Stop being so busy.

Busy is the enemy of Art.

Busy is the avoidance of Pain, and Pain is the only way to grow.

Art comes from Pain.

Busy kills productivity.

You will never be happy when you are Busy. But you will never be sad either.

Busy, like all drugs, can become an escape. It will always end in failure.

Be where your butt is, where your feet are. Be with your fingers and in the lining of your Lungs: Going in. Going out. Your shoulders relaxing into the world.
