Sometimes when I begin to create I feel I am in darkness.
I can feel all prickly about what I am about to begin or what is inside my head.
Then an idea begins to bloom.
But I can still be surrounded by self-doubt.
Then all of a sudden the art comes to life.
But self-doubt can begin to filter in again unless I silence it and let my art thrive.
Sometimes the cycle of darkness begins again without notice.
But this time I grow stronger.
