And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.

    Self-doubt is an enemy I know all too well. Beneath it is fear, and like all forms of fear, I found it is only beaten by facing up to it and doing what needs to be done. Fear has no chance against doing the right thing over and over again.

    With Love,

    A great visual and a great reminder to let the creative spark free, instead of closing it down. Great quote. Thanks for posting.
