Creativity sometimes seems to up dry. It is a terrifying experience – one which makes us wonder whether we will ever be inspired again. My photography muse, Brooke Shaden, just wrote about this very subject in her blog. Although it can be a frightening and depressing place, coming face-to-face with our emptiness and dissatisfaction is also an opportunity for change, and thus, growth. It is a chance to change our perspective and recommit, to make us question our motives and goals.
By taking the time to contemplate these questions, I recognize that my personal demon is simply not making the time to start my “project”. I know what I want to do, and it does not require a lot of money or props. Just the time to do it justice.
