Sometimes downtime is a good thing.
It allows you time to think, read and think again.
I’ve read Austin Kleon’s book, Steal Like An Artist before, but it’s good to read it again. He just gives such amazing, practical advice !!
And you know what? Those pots that I was in such a rush to fire when I fell and broke my ribs are still in the kiln waiting to be fired. The world has not come to an end!
So chill a bit. Stop. Think. Breathe. Enjoy your life.
