The last few months I have struggled with climbing out of the dreaded "Creative Rut." With being so sick with Hyperemesis, I found it took a huge toll on my physical and mental health leading me to avoid any and all creative activity.

Three priceless things you may offer to help them quell the storm, before they explode. Never underestimate or assume the hardships of another's journey or compare your own to theirs, for each of them are as unique as us.
Everyone has their own story, I have never met a strong person without a difficult past.

I truly believe there are these magical places around the world where the heavens and earth collide, creating a gateway from the one world to the next. Although only a handful have ever witnessed these rare moments I would like to think it would look something like this... The heavens filled with vibrancy and colors, too many to fathom, that simply spill over into our world leaving it's mark.
