There are certainly days when I can't sleep. I lie in bed with ideas swirling and brain churning. I write and write and write. I draw pictures of my ideas and I bookmark inspiration like a mad woman. But still I can't sleep for the lack of time to do.
If only I could sew as fast as I can dream.
Recently I heard an interview of this guy: Andrew Bird. He was playing a local show and being interviewed on a local radio station. He's a musical genius to be sure. He talked about how he would be in constant mourning if he felt bad about not being able to act on every idea that came to him. His philosophy: if it comes back it's a keeper.
So perfectly put. Leave them alone and they will come home. I think that's what it takes sometimes.
