Today @brickcentral featured me on IG with this great post on IG:
“It’s hard to work for Darth Inc and pursue your love of legography, but Me2 seems to find a good balance. When he’s not performing some corporate daring do…he’s creating some of the best Lego photos around. … Now if we can only get Me2 to work less and post more” …
And indeed there is a lot of truth in this post when it comes to striking a balance between corporate live and just shooting being Stuck in Plastic.
Would I want to work less and post more ?
For sure there are days when Darth is going crazy on the flavor of the latest marsh-mellows on the Death Star I would like to join Dilbert and take a corporate break, but in general it is the shopfloor reality of corporate Inc. that keeps me going.
It is not a work life balance, but a balance of life.
I would not be me without the corporate Inc. and me in my relationship with Darth and corporate Inc. would not be the same if I hadn’t my legography to escape the corporate madness for a while and sharpen the saw (ouch, is it still political correct to mention the seven habits now that Dr. Stephen R. Covey is no longer setting the scene ?).
So it is a synergy that feeds upon each other and strengthen and influences each other time and time again.
I feel a drive to take pictures and work my “art” but I need the touch with reality and big Inc. to feel that same reality and feel the power balance and not just live in my ivory tower seeking for inner beauty just within myself.
Star Wars, LEGO, Disney, … a series of Big Inc. that influences our creativity and artistic self.
