Walking a creative path

I've been thinking of the creative's journey, the difficulties, the self doubts and immense joy all bundled into one swirling emotion...  This quote by Mary Oliver from an interview I read is a beautiful affirmation of a woman who really stayed true to her creative desires, I love this... "I've said before that the angel doesn't sit on your shoulder unless the pencil's in your hand. ... And in truth that [is only] given after years of desiring it, being open to it, and walking toward it."

Diligently doing the work, holding it as something special, even sacred, having a spacious mind and always moving towards your desire, the main ingredients to a fulfilling creative life...
