I remember the first time I had a creative block. It was a terribly scary feeling to be on a creative high and suddenly wake up one morning feeling like I had used everything up. It wasn't until I put it out into the universe that this was happening did I learn that everyone goes through dry spells.
Those moments force me to focus on other things that need my attention and not worry (too much) about when the creative mojo will return. Eventually the fog lifts.
The difference now is that I don't panic~I've learned to confidently and patiently move through it.
So it was no surprise to me when a few days ago I actually wanted to pick up my camera and shoot a still life scene but needed fresh flowers. Then wanting to drive to Trader Joes specifically to buy those flowers to shoot that still life.
It was comforting and natural, wandering through the house, finding the props, setting the scene, picking up my camera and hearing that familiar click...
...like old friends that haven't seen each other in awhile, picking up where they left off as if no time had passed between them.
How do you move through those times when you have no desire to create even when beauty surrounds you?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
I'm sharing over at Kim's today.
