“Why haven’t you been writing much?” I asked a many times published writer friend of mine one time.
“I need time to breathe.”
“Yes. But you have to know what I mean by ‘breathe.’ I mean sail a boat across an ocean, climb a mountain in the Himalayas, photograph lions in Africa… Something of magnitude. That does the trick. Then I’m ready again. Then there’s no stopping me.”
“Ah. I do know what you mean. I think I need to catch my breath too.”
What do you do to rekindle your artistic energy?
