The art of avoiding is a wonderful term from arranger Russell Garcia. The term is all the things you end up doing, when you really should be doing something else.

I’m sure many of you can relate to that.

I was just avoiding writing this post by shaving. Then it struck me: Why not write the post about this. Avoiding, not shaving.

Then I called my father to check if it was Russell Garcia who came up with the term, not George Russell. Garcia allright.

Then I felt a bit peckish and made a smoothie. Banana, blackcurrants and yogurt. Yummy.

At this point, this whole post was already clear in my head. All I had to do was to sit down and type it down.

That was some pretty good avoiding, I must say. And I made the whole post through without mentioning LULUS PETALS. Attaboy.
