~ excerpts from today's journal writing
Over the years, I've asked for advice and permission far more often than I really should. I need to give myself back the authority I've handed over to others.
My creative work is both hopeful and haunted. I have both strength and weakness and can hold these two, one in each hand, as I work. Passion and detachment. Independence and interconnection. The synthesis of opposites necessary for growth.
Life is filled with unresolvable contradictions. This is fertile ground for creative work.
