Save Room for Pie

Now is that time of year when many of us artists start their Summer retreats, either away or where we are, it’s time to be in the studio. Also at this time many of us experience power struggles within ourselves. Most artists know how to tame these feelings and some seem to be constantly working on them. It feels like everything is churning at the same time just as the summer heat is coming on. Just remember the reason you are here. Remember the reasons you are doing this work. Maybe you will want to meditate and allow yourself into your practice. It will see you through the harder points. Many ideas arise as you throw yourself into your work so give yourself time to analyze and be easy on yourself and never forget always save room for pie.
