If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Courage to Follow

morningpages

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.

Erica Jong

The dark places tell me I’m not that special, that what I dislike in others is also in me, and that dark places are never far away.

But it’s morning now, and once again I pick up my pen to write.
