The Ebb and Flow of Creativity

The Moon

Emerging from the deep waters of illumination and creativity to trip head over heels into a heap of laundry, a pile of receipts that need to be filed and a dozen and one other day-to-day tasks that I need to catch up with.

It's the ebb and flow of creativity. It's creating from the heart. It's passion. It's believing in what you do. Because there's nothing routine about passion. There are no limits to illumination. There is nothing calculated about intuition. There's nothing moderate about zeal, and desire is not halfhearted.

If you want passion in your life, you have to let the idea of balance take on a different, more long term role. It's not the same sort of balance as the kind you can get in times when your days can be measured and divided up into sensible amounts of time spent in a variety reasonable areas. In times of passion, it's ebb and flow. It's a leap of faith. A deep sense of purpose.

Here and There

I was almost swept off my feet by the wild wind on my way home from the shops with freshly ground espresso and a bottle of red wine. And a pot of daffodils, sort of like a prop, to make it feel more like spring. Treats for a Friday celebration.
