I have been a little lax of late focussing on lecturing and research. What I find interesting is going back to having the issues that any creative has of seeking inspiration.
Finding the right triggers and developing techniques to aid in this process is the challenge all my students faced and unless you go through it as a practitioner you will struggle to relate to their pain. It can be a lonely process and is often neglected in courses where their is minimal support for the plague of self doubt that can so easily afflict the creative process. Starting again is a timely reminder of these challenges!
