I met with my poetry group yesterday. I find that writing poetry keeps me focused on fostering the creativity within. The following are thoughts on how we receive inspiration for writing.
“Through All That Happens”
As you unfold as an artist, Just keep on, quietly and earnestly,
Growing through all that happens to you.
You cannot disrupt this process more violently than by looking outside yourself for answers that may only be found by attending to your innermost feelings.
The thoughts were taken from:
