It’s the end of summer, and by now, we’re likely to be feeling either refreshed or a little like something washed ashore – tossed by the waves, spit up in the sand.
I’m hoping the former is true, but it’s okay if you say “both.” I certainly feel a little of both right now. It’s been a frenzied summer in many ways, yet there has been refreshment too, I must say. Mostly, I feel grateful, hopeful, and excited about the future, including the upcoming school year for the kids. But we in the creative world always have the temptation before us to feel uncertain about what’s next and whether we’re in the right place when it comes to our creative lives.
Recently, a friend shared something I so appreciated that I wanted to bring it to you here. It’s definitely a keeper. I hope it will give hope to all who are questioning where they’ve been and where they’re heading, as we all do at times:
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
