Liam Neeson, cats and creativity.

What do you do when creativity is at a low point?

A few family issues put a dampener on my creativity last week. Worrying, over-analysing and trying to fix things (that may not be mine to fix, I’ll admit) does tend to take its toll on the creative mind.  And then I saw my cat. Completely unconcerned about life, children, writing, husbands and even food (given that her chubby self had already consumed her breakfast in record-breaking time). Her worries amounted to whether she really had to get off the bed I was trying to make (and what was poking her under the quilt).

PS. It is difficult to hold a camera still while you are poking a cat from underneath a quilt.
