Planning the Space in Between
Lauree Ostrofsky wrote a brilliant post about negative space. The Japanese call it ‘ma’, the space between things. She asks what one would do if we planned the things between activities. What would our day look like if we only planned the down time instead of the fillers of time we usually dictate? She asks
“What would today’s calendar entry look like if you only listed the time between activities instead of the activities themselves? How would it change how you view your time?”
What would you do if you had a day of nothingness? Would you disappear? Or would your true self emerge?
