An attachment to expectations is a form of micromanagement. Not every variable can be calculated. Not every member of the gallery will like your painting of a chinstrap penguin. An attachment to expectations brings an attachment to elements you just can’t control. Even if you do get the results you wanted, it’s likely that some people won’t like the work you’ve done.

What’s left when expectations are lowered?

Flow. Presence. Appreciation for the craft. A dance with a practical uncertainty. A practical uncertainty that might lead to spontaneous creation.
