Cathy, I have found over the years that getting the ‘ah ha’ or
creative insight in one area very often leaks over into others; for
example, from writing into drawing or from jewelry design and
production into problem solving in another area.
Once those juices flow it is one of the most seductive and addictive
feelings anywhere. I don’t waste a lot of time trying to
over-analyze where it came from, but I do try to note what was going
on when the light bulb came on (other than being in the dark). Often
it comes with music, other times from the soft outdoors smell of the
pine resins in the mountains or from an image or form glimpsed in
another media. Enjoy the process and when you notice the times/things
that tend to precede or accompany the ‘ah ha’ make those things part
of your creative space or routine.
Often it is just a gift from the universe. Enjoy!
