The Prompter Room

For Tuesday, January 24, 2017:

 

… You must not fear, hold back, count or be a miser with your thoughts and feelings.  It is also true that creation comes from an overflow, so you have to learn to intake, to imbibe, to nourish yourself and not be afraid of fullness … Something is always born of excess: great art was born of great terrors, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them …

One thought on “The Prompter Room

  1. Wow! I’ve been doing Tai Chi for five years now, and have been practicing giving out only 70 percent of my energy, using 30 percent inside. And now, I’m trying to figure out–as if it’s possible!–how to reconcile that with giving everything in the creative process. i’d love to know your thoughts.
