Chasing the muse

Creativity is a current that never stops flowing. We simply choose whether to tap into it or not. Embracing this simple truth changed my life.

I used to think of my creative muse as a maddeningly capricious vapor. In 2012, I decided to stop waiting for inspiration. I learned that when I do my part – show up and get to work – inspiration comes. Whether the result is shitty or inspired, I’m left with something I didn’t have before. I’ve created something.
