Freedom VS Structure

My freedom-loving inner artist that lives to splash color

is needing to wait her turn today :/

Structure, her counter-intuitive partner, is hard at work, laying a firm foundation.

 This stage is not my favorite.

 Funny, this morning’s reading from Christine Valters Paintner’s, the Artist’s Rule,  Abbey of the Artswas:

Creativity arises out of the tension between spontaneity and limitations, the latter – like the riverbanks – forcing the spontaneity into various forms which are essential to the work of art or poem.

– Rollo May
