Artist and Addict.

This post by Steven Pressfield crossed my desk (virtual, of course) today.

I think it has a lot of connection to what I was talking about earlier in the fear of failure post.

I love what he has to say, because I know what he says all too well.

“The thing about the Muse is, when she gifts you with inspiration—the idea for a new album, a ballet, the impetus for an act of love or commitment—she dumps the job in your lap and says, “Jane, take over.” The Muse doesn’t do the work for you. She can’t; she’s not here in this material dimension.

You and I are the only ones here. We have to work. That’s the sign. That’s how we know the inspiration is real.”
