mixed up monday: rainy day

on 05-21-2012

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.   

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Sometimes, when I’m diving into a new creative project, raindrops and gray skies morph into a mirror of my own doubts

Splish.

Why did this seem like such a good idea? 

Splash.

How will I even make this happen?

Drip.

Do I even know what “this” is? 

Drop.

Should I keep going or abandon ship?

 

My go-to remedy for rambling questions on a rainy day? Turn up some puddle-splashing music and remember Longfellow’s advice. Let it rain.
