Beyond The Studio Door| Creativity

“Clearly creativity emanates from something that rises, rolls, surges, and spills into us rather than something that just stands there hoping that we might, however circuitously, find our way to it. In that sense we can never “lose” our creativity. It is always there, filling us or colliding with whatever obstacles are placed in its path. If it finds no inlet to us, it backs up, gathers energy, and rams forward again till it breaks through. The only ways we can avoid its insistent energy are to continuously mount barriers against it, or to allow it to be poisoned by destructive negativity and negligence.” – Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Phd

This is the first post in a series I’m calling Beyond The Studio Door.

I often come across inspiring words or visit places I would like to tell you about. In these posts I’ll do just that. They will be short quotes relating to art or links to things I think are illuminating.

I hope you do to!
