I opened your post just a second ago and could NOT believe that you had posted this. I just logged off from watching it less than 5 minutes ago. I had been saving it for a nice 20 minute treat for myself.....really think she says a lot to those of us who work at creating. After taking such a long hiatus in my creative work, sometimes I feel just shocked that I'm working and that something absolutely comes out that I turn out to enjoy having made so much.....all kind of mysterious, huh? I see right now that if I just look to the right of this comment of mine I can perfectly well see how you "ended up in Cove":) In fact, I thik I probably skimmed through it the first time I came to your site but now I'm going to savor it. Have a great weekend and thanks for posting the Eliz Gilbert video.

Sunrise Sister I will save the SF-Cove story. I am amazed when something beautiful comes out of me like an epiphany, many pieces are such a struggle and most of the struggles don't get close to those that appeared with ease. The act of creativity is sometimes filled with doubt. Where is the angel of creativity today? This video helped me appreciate that she shows up at all. I loved the story of Tom Waits.

Happy creativity and thanks for visiting.
