“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.”

-Mary Oliver

I know this to be true for myself. I tattoo for my job and I love it. But I have always had an uprising of creative energy that I have often never given a voice to, a personal expression that isn’t necessarily available through the exercising of a craft.

I’ve had enough choking on the noxious fumes of my unused potential and am making changes to my life and the structure of it, to allow the muses to whisper in my ear and space for me to hear them when they do.

I hope those of you out there that know the feeling of not allowing the energy to flow can open up your pathways so that you will not live a life of regret, but instead live a life of satisfaction in work well done.
