Is creative work a kind of marathon?
I don’t know.
Sure feel like it sometimes though.
Makes me think of the artistic reference to Groundhog Day.
I think there can be a quiet, reserved, comfort in this resignation:
The fact that: There is no finish line.
Might the trick be to just keep showing up?
Art is the kind of marathon where you cross the finish line and instead of getting a medal placed around your neck, the volunteers roughly grab you by the shoulders and walk you over to the starting line of another marathon.
