Our natures and talents can inspire and urge us to create. Sometimes, however, there are too many pushes and pulls which can lead to a state of stasis. Being multi talented is not easy: it can be very distracting. Trying to make a living from one's creativity can further complicate this. Market trends, cheap imports, giving up one's own choices to make something more affordable, more trendy, more saleable all can make it less yours. Less yours is less fun, less fun leads to burnout. Burn out is hard to feed to your children.
I'm thinking of a friend who is going through a situation right now. I hope it resolves itself. Breath deeply, recharge, enjoy the leaves.
