Small patterns. Large patterns. A pattern is a pattern is a pattern!
“What the hell are you talking about?”
Don’t worry, I hear you asking.
“What are you referring to you crazy actress chick?”
What I am talking about is how the way we open the jam jar is the same way reveal ourselves to our loved ones. The way we drive in traffic is the same way we make our biggest life choices. A patterned person is the same patterned person no matter what they do or where they go. It’s inevitable. It’s everywhere. It’s you! And you can’t escape it!
BUM BUM BUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMM!
So learn to love it!
Tabby and I were racing around Seattle all weekend, embracing and enjoying the fabulous-ness of the city as well as getting completely lost and turned around. We would take turns driving and we both really saw how the way we drive is exactly the same way we live our lives.
So this is Tabby:
“Ok guys here we go. Um. Which way am I going. No I don’t mind driving at all I just need to know how to get there. Umm which lane should I be in. Oh, never mind there’s the sign. Umm is that the right sign.
Umm which direction should I turn? Ummm which lane? Ummm is this ok?
Ummm I donâ€™t want to piss anyone off.”
This is me:
“So I saw this fantastic film the other nightâ€”wow that is the coolest coffee shop lets go there (car veers drastically right)â€”wait!
Never mind, it does’t look organic (car veers drastically to the left).
Anyway, this film I saw was completely mind blowing, I mean, really innovative aâ€”oh my god look at that fabulous sculpture garden, we have to stop (car veers back to the right equally as drastically). Do you think I can park here? Ah, fuck it, we will only be a few minutes. And if we get towed, oh well it will give us the chance to have a nice walk through Seattle and find some other cool boutiques and things.”
And funnily enough, this is exactly how we play out our lives.
Considerate and kind. A bit nervous, but encouraged.
Always making sure that she is doing the right thing and eager to be a part of any project she believes is good and valuable in the world.
Passionate and a bit reckless.
So enthralled with the things I want to do that sometimes I get completely lost in the process. Changing my mind on a dime, but ultimately so in love with all the opportunities I feel I could burst.
