Look, but not too closely

A creative block can be one of the most frustrating things to work through, and I feel that the past few months have not been my best. So... what do I do? I just watched an excellent video of Elizabeth Gilbert speaking about the need to keep going. When I read her book, Eat Pray Love, it completely changed the way I thought about life and the experiences we can have while living it. It has inspired me to plan my ever changing trip to Europe, and think of my future as having less walls and limits. I sometimes feel that I am the only one who doubts myself. This is definitely not true, and the real test is not whether I can create one great piece, it's if I can create many great pieces, while struggling to do so. Thank you Elizabeth.
