The strategy is to have a practice, and what it means to have a practice is to regularly and reliably do the work in a habitual way.
The notion that I do my work here, now, like this, even when I do not feel like it, and especially when I do not feel like it, is very important. Because lots and lots of people are creative when they feel like it, but you are only going to become a professional if you do it when you don’t feel like it. And that emotional waiver is why this is your work and not your hobby.– Seth Godin on the daily habits of creative practice. (via explore-blog) Via Tumbl'n with Kt
In Melbourne there lived a couple, a cosmopolitan and clever couple who spent their days operating a private practice and their nights watching films, attending lectures, teaching night classes, and driving to the theater (A Winter’s Tale! We must go see it!).
And people could see that they were happy. There were no signs that anything was missing. Their life seemed to have been constructed for them by some benevolent force outside their control, which had determined that theirs should be an existence blissfully free of any inconvenience, annoyance, or pain.
Except for the nightmare. In the cold hours of the morning, when Dr. Granger would toss and turn and wake Dr. Granger, they would sit up, disheveled, and look at each other, and resolutely not discuss the little girl they both saw when they closed their eyes at night. But who is she? they would later think, while pulling teeth and cleaning gums. Who is she? they would ask themselves, laughing with noted experts on dental radiology. Who is she? they wondered, midway through the Melbourne Underground Troupe’s terrifically intellectual take on Shakespeare.
They did not know anything about her, beyond a solid conviction that somewhere, in some wild forest or rambling castle or terrible manor, in some fantastic place, she existed. She was real.
That was not the nightmare. The nightmare was that they knew she was alone.
The alternate universe in which Severus Snape’s nose is attractively aquiline, or possibly merely Roman; his bearing is nobly patrician; his manner is more reserved than rude; his eyes hide Deepest Inner Pain; his hair is soft and silky and decidedly not greasy; he possesses infinite knowledge of a million or so subjects; he is secretly more caring than Dumbledore and McGonagall combined; he treasures very young children with tender kindness and only mistreats them as they age in order to reveal to them the very harsh Cruelty of the world; he became a Death Eater by complete coincidence or accident — we suspect he tripped and fell onto his Dark Mark, for certainly he possesses no impulse we can detect as blameworthy.
And yet. And yet still the world torments him.
For it has been revealed that he is also the biological father of Lily’s son, and therefore he owes over a decade’s worth of child support back payments to the Potter estate.
