During the years I have been creative, maybe to a point where my brain never rested just to get all that creativity down. Maybe it was music, or ways to make work better and easier. But the general theme is that my mind never rested, until three years ago when I gave in to it, and let my brain rest. In fact I let my brain rest until 10 months ago, when I got my cat Esther. She opened me up, and maybe only two weeks after I got her my creativity started to bloom again.
The rest was probably necessary for my brain to recover and make me want to be creative again. From the outside it doesn't show but there is a change going on, and I'm not sure where I will finally land this time. I'll let you know when I know!
