Here’s another quote from Alan Arkins An Improvised Life:

It is our nature to be creative. Not being creative is an aberration.

That may be the single quote I’ve been looking for to inspire me — at least until I get to a place where I can be my own inspiration.

It’s just more proof that I need to trust my intuition and my connection to the Universe.  I didn’t go to the library on Saturday looking for memoirs of creative people.  I just saw several on the shelf and grabbed them without much thought and without even reading the book flaps.  I just brought them home and started reading — and found myself in the middle of some intense spiritual and creative philosophy.

Good stuff.
