I have, I think, been guilty lately of doing nothing and waiting for inspiration to strike (and of procrastinating by working hard outdoors, and by reviewing old photos instead of making new ones).
Apropos of this, I came across this interview with Paul Taylor, the choreographer, in which Taylor says:
Inspiration: I don’t believe in it. People think some muse comes down and strikes. Well, making a dance is just plain work like anything else. The inspiration is the deadline.
I knew this. Apparently I needed to be reminded.
