I don’t know why Rona Maynard’s post on pilates and writing should make me think of something I read the other day about Marina Abramovic—the performance artist who recently closed what sounded like a most bizarre and amazing show in NYC, and is known for her ‘experiments’ in art through human nature—but it did. It reminded me of how she said: “We don’t change when we do things we like…”
I love that. I love the idea of how change works and how inherently resistant we are to it and how maybe that’s why it’s so difficult to do what’s good for us. Because change will follow, growth of the right kind. And maybe—what?—we’re a little nervous about the right kind? Maybe we prefer the kind that insulates us and keeps us where we are—gormlessly and endlessly questioning the whole why of exactly that.
