the shed

You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be, This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.

Joseph Campbell

In November 2015 after 11 years of working in office spaces, I set-up shop in a 10×12 Thoreau-inspired shed in my backyard and haven’t looked back since. The rhythms of this new way of working/living have transformed the way I move through each day and have spawned an entirely new artistic and contemplative practice. Follow along the journey by joining the community of folks interested in my work at Patreon and receive in your inbox my monthly Notes from the Shed, a common place record of things I’ve come across, meditated on, workshopped, and/or created each month; you’ll also receive (among other things) a download of the 15-minute narrated essay The Shed all about how it came to be.
