When things are rough, [creativity/ingenuity/resourcefulness] will keep you afloat. In times of calm, it will allow you to fly.
Love the image, love the message, and love the way it’s composed. We need more of this on the internet my friend.
And I’m reminded of the words of our forefathers
The great Emerson, Thoreau, London
The sermon of resourcefulness
And we could all be Robinson Crusoes
Drifting away on tropical clouds
High above the scorned earth
I usually describe my process as working on new material, hitting a wall, then working through a self-critical phase, and then the break through. The moment when I remember why writing was the choice I made.
It makes considering the process of change. One identifies a problem, as one thinks through the process to change that problem, as one receives more feedback (more practice in their craft) they begin to understand how to work the feedback into their work, and they change.
On paper it’s simple, but I surprise myself each day over how easy it is to lose perspective.
