Invocations are usually done at the beginnings of a venture. From the Greeks and forward to the present day, invocations have been standard operating procedure for the beginnings of anything of real moment. Steven Pressfield in his book, The War of Art, describes how every writing day begins for him with an invocation from T.E.Lawrence's translation of The Odyssey. That invocation concludes with the following, "Make this tale live for us in all its many bearings, O Muse!"
I don't think of this last week here at P2PU as an ending. Instead, it's a chance to look back, reflect, and invoke forward "a tale to live for us in all its many bearings". The story you tell forward will be unique, even idiosyncratic. It is as much for yourself as it is for your audience, but I am not leaving you hanging. I have included some help. I have recorded this set of instructions and included two videos to give you some guidance. The two short videos are from ze frank. He will be like the angel in "Wings of Desire", there to offer aid to your soul, your daimon, your genius.
The first video ["Mediuming"] is by way of a set of directions for the right brain--indirect, emotional, and definitely not stepwise. Use them as you will. YMMV, your mileage may vary.
The second video ["An Invocation for Beginnings"] is by way of a model, ze frank's invocation, uniquely his own just as sure as yours will be.
I have placed audio instructions and the two video above in one place, an interesting new site that might get your creative juices going, "Dragontape".
That is your task. Make your mark. What do you intend? What future do you invoke? It could be specific to the weeks of work that have preceded or you might make a jaunty walkabout into another arroyo. Hint: you might want to make note of the imperative quality of ze frank's invocation--his "Let me...". But that is only one of many adjacent possibles.
Do as you will in whatever mode you will for however long as you will. I look forward to sharing mine, may you share yours here as well. And about perfectionism. Ze Frank says this about him, "Perfectionism may look good in his shiny shoes, but he's a little bit of an asshole and no one invites them to their pool parties."
