My husband and I just returned from Mexico. We stayed at a retreat without electricity. It was lush, beautiful, and quiet. No schedule. Time seemed to go by slowly. It felt like a real break.
It occurred to me how great it is to just get away so that you can come back stronger. Going to a foreign country where the people, the language, the food, and the landscape are different - - is exhilarating! Lots to see and experience. Your senses are heightened and you can't help but be inspired.

Of course I couldn't wait to get back into the studio. But more importantly, I realized how important it is to get away - whether to another country or just taking a walk around the block - it's critical for an artist to do this for themselves.
“I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown; for going out, I found, was really going in.”
