Day Six: Schemas of Genius
I had expected that I would be taking delicate pictures of nature’s growth and glory, the changing sky or moody sunsets but no. Any illusion I had of the amount of time I spend in nature and revelling in the embrace of Mother Earth are being firmly squashed by this project. My realisation is that I had an underlying assumption that because I am not gainfully employed that (a) I had nothing better to do and (b) I have plenty of time on my hands. I actually have plenty better to do and one of those things is my sadly neglected SatNav4TheSoul toolbox. SatNav4TheSoul emerged from my love of the warmth of technology and my passion for the world of imagination. A set of self coaching apps the first of which, FindYourMojo, was launched in 2012. I lolly gagged about in the imaginary world of concept and teetered on the brink of fantasy for months but eventually got to a point where I could not avoid that bringing these apps into reality required hard action; visual design brief, functional specifications and app schemas. Unfortunately I know how to do these things so prevarication was not an option. Squeezing blood from a stone I managed to create the visual design brief about a month ago but I was spinning wheels on the schemas. Suddenly today my energy shifted and my commitment to complete the overarching schema turned into an effortless flow and all the schema work is completed. It took will to stay hunkered down today, not to distract myself seeking out awe but rather allow it come to me by way of spirit, genius if you will, as I know that I couldnt have done this by myself.
100 Days of Awe is a playful project I set up to bring my attention to awe in my daily life. I see awe as wonder, a mixture of amazement and respect. I expect the experience of awe to be about perception shifting awareness and that demands a reframing of some sort. I am excited to see what will awe me on this journey.
