It's funny how creative energies totally stop flowing when you most need them. I don't think that's coincidence, though. I think it has something to do with actual mental wiring. I think creativity flows best in an idle mind, and that's why most artistic stuff is quite idle. Like it comes when you're largely left alone to your thoughts, or when your thoughts are a larger part of your life than actual actions. Cause actions and actual physical productivity don't inspire that corner of your brain that churns out the dramatica and the emotica. Real life is mostly mundane and regulated, when you're getting down to brass tacks.
I think it was Ronald Reagan who said something about no man having ever accomplished anything great who only did what he felt like doing. Maybe it's just another one of those little annoying ironies of life that nags us to just gird up our loins and jump into the sewer, etc.
I think it was also Ronald Reagan who said "You can tell a lot about fellow's character by his way of eating jelly beans." I swear. Look it up.

yeah,,,and I also once heard Micheal once telling you not to pain yourself by dripping hot candle wax on yourself; which you proceeded in doing so anyway; you did forget to include "Do, not try this at home kids!" so I went and gave it a shot myself...and gorsh flor how can that be fun! ...I totally agree its mad to do something such as dripping candle wax on own arm or hand or leg...who needs such a feeling...I know I do! it was kinda hot at the beginning...but after a few moments of closly absording the candle wax...it was almost like making art that was freezable, as I watch the drips of candle wax hit the surface of my fore arm , things slowly started to go to slow motion candle wax falling and crashing silently against skin to the sound of orcastra "beatiful ppl" playing in the back ground..I do ...yes i do now understand your logic flor...or am I totally wrong?

You probably weren't doing it properly, Lee. You need to break yourself in, a little at a time. Eventually you can get to the point where you can pour it all over and let it drip down. You must be smart about these things.
I should've included the "do not try this at home kids", you're right. I wasn't thinking about you, I'm sorry.
