I also turn to my journal a good deal to work out the kinks. Susan Taylor Chehak urges her friends and students to read broadly and deeply so that is a resource as well because for me it's less block and more "locked" i.e. not shifting smoothly from one gear to the next if you will. I've also found crafting, painting, yoga, intense exercise, and skiing to really help--giving the 'monkey mind' something else to fixate on so the rest of the brain can freely work its magic.(less)

When someone indicates they were deeply moved by my words, I am grateful and honored. The point of art is to move the heart in some way, in my opinion. Of course I wish to be artful, to work the language beautifully but to touch the heart of a reader is much more important to me. (less)
