It's an unfortunate predicament to which we've all been a victim... the dreaded creative block. Burrr.... It elicits shivers with its very presence in this post, I know, but it's a necessary conversation to have with ourselves regarding our own creative journeys.
So, what does it mean to have a creative block? There are many theories and definitions but, most notably, it's defined as an inability to access the inspiration that drives our creativity. Whether we are trapped in a repetition of normalcy and the expected, trapped by our own expectations and fears, overwhelmed with unstructured work ethic, or faced with the stress of ordinary life, creative blocks are a hardship we all must endure once in a while.
Now the question comes.... how do we combat these blocks? How do we re-open the door to our creativity and productivity? Here are a few suggestions I've found works for me.
Sometimes, when we allow the creative block the space to complete its cycle, we find that what we create on the other end of it is a masterpiece!
Happy weaving everyone, and get creating!

I love your photos! In particular... the water drops, the 2nd one like Buddha in Blue... very cool! The first one reminds me of a hot air balloon taking off... so beautiful!

Water drops are my go-to source for inspiration! Thank you for the compliment. I saw the Buddha in the blue one immediately!
