I understood her point and felt sympathetic to it in terms of her varied explorations of spirituality and the effect upon her creativity flow. Donna Karan (designer) : ”You know, people say : ‘Oh, there she goes again : yoga, kabbalah…God only knows where she is going…’ But without that, I couldn’t do my job and my job is very important to me because it affects other people. And I think that’s why I do it – because I touch other people.” …….. *** Submerged again in work. The plan is to take a break of 3 days the weekend following this one. To give myself that treat, I must finish an overwhelming number of projects. An energy flow is all about equilibrium. You must protect it as an artist in order to do what you are meant to do. When it is cold outside, and the light reflects this, certain atmospheric intruders attempt to steal the energy of the creative process. I succumb to it in the winter with 8 hours of sleep and the effort to begin again the next day. *To make something exist that did not exist before you created it.* That is what the artist does and to do this is all about the flow of the energy.
