To Be Slightly Uncomfortable Expands Time

I've noticed that in this itinerant art practice of mine that comfort compresses time. Being slightly uncomfortable expands time. For instance, when working down at 60 Wall Street, with the homeless talking to God and birds chirping I work so fast and don't move from the project at hand.

Last Sunday, at 60 Wall "free spacing," I sat for 4 hours without moving; working, gluing, writing, thinking, resolving, completing!

Another overheard studio-artist commenting about their studio-bound practice, "sometimes I just sit in my studio for 8 hours and just stare at the wall."
