This is a discovery I had while on Nantucket and just about to go into Savasana. This is the short version of the story. But the point is as creative people and artists we think all too often of our audience, what will people say, etc. - which is often enough to stop people from speaking their truth, creating their beauty, forever. But the flower (and even the first flower ever) blooms without all that noise. It's special to me. (This insight just fell into my person as my favorite yoga teacher was putting these rose petals on each of our third eye chakras).
