A great shift in perspective

When I occasionally am denied or deny myself the expression of my creativity, like most of last week all kinds of random thoughts are roaming my mind.

I let that happen, gladly, and then, both deliberately and not I go through all my current stories in my head, expanding upon them in ways I may not usually be able to do.

It’s a great and beyond useful shift in perspective, expanding both my life and art.

Do you mean that denying yourself creative expression causes this shift in perspective? What exactly do you mean by that?

It's comparable to a dam breaking. Thoughts and inspiration are always flooding my mind. When I block the flow or the flow is blocked somehow, somewhat, its flood grows even more powerful. I think More and different.
