So for my second artist date me and my artist, a rather quiet and withdrawn chap I realised, who easily takes the backseat when any other thought comes in, headed off to the Beauty Green Resort in Shamshabad which is managed by my friend Koni. It's a quit place and has a lot of space and almost no people around so I decided to head there. Another reason was that the drive itself is an hour long so I could spend time listening to my favorite music.

My insights were interesting. First and foremost, that I do not give my artist much time and thought. I frequently saw myself putting others ahead and thinking of stuff like that and realised I needed to pull it back and focus on the artist who was disappearing very quickly into the background.

And when I put my focus on him I found him quite interesting, suggesting ideas like sitting by the pool, taking my shoes off and walking on the lawns bare foot, staying back until I felt I needed to go instead of going because I am bound by time.

Koni and I had a nice quiet discussion listening to some fine old music by Def Leppard, Kool and the Gang and so on and then I ate a nice hot meal and returned - a nice, slow drive with my artist. I have to name him now. I'll wait - it will come to me.
Clearly I am enjoying meeting him and spending time with him. And I like listening to those gentle ideas that pop in when I am with him. (Or is it a her?)
