Be Here Now

Over the last few years it’s like I’ve been overwhelmed by all the channels out there. All require a different voice, some louder and to the point, others more quiet. And none of them seem to fit how I think, how I write.

And I’ve been afraid to use this space for my thoughts. This is where i do business after all. But I’ve come to realise I need to invite you in again.

We have nothing but this moment, and by sharing where I am, how I feel in this instant, maybe we’ll connect somehow.

I’m sitting in the house of my friends Si and Sophie in Auckland, New Zealand, they’ve invited us in to do my workshop here tomorrow. Marissa Nadler is playing in the background, I’m sipping a cup of coffee and enjoying a quiet moment of really feeling present. I haven’t had a lot of that recently, My thoughts have either been in the past or the future, never really appreciating where I am. We’re moving to Byron Bay in a few months and I have a crazy year of travel ahead of me yet again and I’ve honestly been a little afraid of what’s to come.

But with the music playing and the coffee pumping in my veins, I finally land.

I can do this.

We can do this.

  1. Thank you so much. I spend so much time thinking about what I have done and what I am going to do that I forget to just live. Thanks again I really needed this post.

  2. This resonates with me. The space in between the nonsense thinking of past and future is so vast and expansive and ever rewarding. Why the heck do we forget the obviousness of this so easily. There never is a problem in this moment.

  3. I hear ya. We have a lot on our plate too, including long planned move across the globe, reopening my European studio stateside and all that jazz.
    Byron Bay sounds like a spectacular place to live (loving the lighthouse). Cheers!

  4. Good to have you back on here Jonas – always useful to hear the thinking behind your images. I hope your workshop goes well – say hello to Andrew Hellmich for me.

  5. You can do this (and please tell me the name of the music –from your chinese fans
