It’s challenging when there’s inspiration everywhere…


and sometimes it’s downright debilitating. Come on you creative types, don’t you just want to shut it off sometimes? On the days in the studio when I am deliberate and focused it feels really amazing, but it’s rare. I’m trying to embrace the brain I’ve been allocated. This brain is pretty cluttered and noisy and ridiculously interested in everything.

I can’t help myself. I am truly stopped in my tracks by a shiny object on the side of the road, what’s in my garbage, or stuck to my boots. For years I have tried to fight it. I’ve tried to resist the urge to photograph or jot down something that sparked me and now I’ve realized that although it isn’t actually a most inconvenient trait—it’s a big a part of me and cannot be stifled. It will surface again and again especially if I try to ignore it. Then it gets loud and really obnoxious. I do however really wish that there was a way to shut it of…a metaphoric MUTE button for muse. Let me know your thoughts on this topic. What do you do to shut it off? Thank goodness for truly amazing television right now and a state filled with craft brews.
