It’s the best place to be when you get into that groove. Everything just falls aside. But I know it’s hard when juggling a lot. I spent many long nights beside a fire, because it was the only time I had to write, after the boys were in bed and the house and my head peaceful again.
But everyone has their own way of getting into that space, so I don’t think there’s any one formula for it. I have some friends who have to completely disconnect, go into the hills and just escape, and others who are very systematic about it, from 5 am to 9 this or that, and from noon to 3 something else, etc. I personally can’t be that rigid, but whatever works.
I think that’s the most important thing, that you just have a place that alights those senses. Time is just a management thing and never enough of it. But a spot where you can hunker into with those thoughts, that for me is what gets that groove going, like a great bed for sex haha.
