Sometimes new form is difficult. Not the birth of it, I think that just happens. The acceptance of it. That is often blocked by our choosing NOT to show it.
I don't know about you but I can say in all honesty, audience is a factor. Well, after all my years I know in my heart that is probably always true. There is a need to share, but we shape it. So new form is rare. Because it isn't easy to explain. And may not fit to expectation. May not be "marketable". Even if we are not selling anything, we are still "selling self" in a way, although that is a harsh way to put it. Like Deb, I have been thinking about what we share and what we choose not too. And then, what we share, how that also might fall back on "old form". The familiar, the way we are expected to handle it. The self we are known as. There was a long story here that seemed to happen in an instant. There were choices and I left the cute behind.
I want to call this The Need to Explain. But then, for now, not explain.
I threw this onion end in the compost. It seems to have other ideas.
