A creative life or daily creative activity is a funny thing- fraught with missteps, miscues and misfires. It is not, as we might think, a Sturm und Drang artistic wrestle with the fates. It's far more practical and hilarious than that.
Occasionally, an amusing thought, often containing a bitter grain of truth, will pop into my head.This is a partial list of these nuggets of "wisdom."
1. Coffee helps. A lot.
2. Let your voice be the only one speaking in your head.
3. Create a space for silence. Music comes from there.
4. Listen, don't think.
