It’s amazing to me how fast time moves. I don’t know if it’s me or the world, but it moves too fast most of the time. Years ago, when I was experimenting with writing poetry–since abandoned–I wrote one short poem with a line that has stayed with me since then: Even on the longest day, nightfall comes too soon.
The main thing that keeps me grounded in this whirlwind is my studio time. Time slows down here and my thoughts can take their natural, slow winding course, even if only for a few minutes or an hour.
I don’t usually write about things I’m reading etc, but I wanted to share a blog I’ve been following for a while. Steven Pressfield writes about the process of creating art and he’s been sharing a series of posts the past few months about his new book, The Artist’s Journey. If you haven’t read him, check it out. I wanted to share today’s post particularly because he shares an important point about creativity and the journey all of us can take, if we choose.
Best wishes for a more creative life.
