It's no secret that I haven't been creating much of anything lately. Oh I have a million excuses for it that I won't bother to bore you with now but the truth is that creating can be exhausting sometimes. And it can take a lot out of a person. And when the creative muse leaves your side, as it so often does, that can leave you down in a hole for a bit. And so it has.
Now don't get me wrong, being in the hole has it's purpose too. Down here in the hole I have been able to see a lot of things much clearer, I have made some decisions that are game-changers in many respects. I have paid more attention to my family and friends. So the hole can be a good place...for a while. But I do miss my muse.
I recently came across this TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert that I thought I would share with you here. In it she talks about the often-elusive creative genius and how perhaps we need to view genius in a different way...and I agree.
Let me know what you think. And maybe, just maybe, by this time next week I will have created something to share with everyone, if my muse will only come back!
