The benefit of a clean room, a well kept kitchen, or a designated desk space reaches beyond aesthetic merit. I’ve been thinking about inspiration and our bodies-how vital it is to be able to be clear in mind and environment to be able to respond to muse when channeled.
The ability to act on creative impulse is the main reason why I maintain a sense of lived in orderliness in my room and kitchen. This way, feeding my inspiration does not feel blocked or challenged by my circumstances, i.e. an excess of clutter on a table top, dirty dishes, or journals/art supplies buried and misplaced.
This is one of the avenues to health, one of the primary sources of nourishment-the ability to respond to and facilitate creative force.
