"Dead Working Period"

"I believe in listening to cycles. I listen by not forcing. If I am in a dead working period, I wait, though these periods are hard to deal with. For the future, I'll see what happens. I'll be content if I get started again. If I feel that alive again. If I find myself working with the old intensity again."

~ Lee Krasner 1908-1983
from Artist to Artist compiled by Clint Brown

This struck a cord with me when I read it. I am so in a "Dead working period" as Krasner put it, and I am so frustrated with the wait!

I shall try harder to not force it...
