My Creative Agreement With The Great Creator

When I write, I write in partnership with the universe.

Every morning, when I sit here to write, I see that sign on the wall. I keep the lighting low, but I have a light pointed at that sign on the wall. I have posted that sign on my wall to remind me that creativity in the arts is a partnership between the universe and me:

Great Creator,

I will take care of the quantity.

You will take care of the quality.

I got this idea from the book, The Artist’s Way, many years ago. I don’t know exactly how I got the idea to print it and tape it to my wall, but there it is. I have had that sign on my wall for years now, wherever I sit to write, and I feel that partnership at work every time I look at it.

Husband, father, worker, philosopher, and observer. Plumbing the depths of consciousness to find the spring of happiness. Write on.
