What is Presence? Presence is a folded-over stretch in the middle of your day when you realize your hamstrings are tight. Presence is taking the goddamned time to floss.
When The Enrichment Project began to stretch into its third year, I felt like I'd been dropped into a giant maze. Much later, I select Touchstones to represent what I was learning from the Enrichment Project.
In 2010, I harbored this vague Desire to enrich my life in some way. I was anything but Present, describing my creative process as "assembly-line-like." I was distinctly out of Balance, possessing scant insight into my own patterns. And so I contacted a Circle of women, asking to pester them for a year with questions about their creative processes.
