The Saturday Writing Quote – on getting unstuck

CKV - Plum Lovely“Playing the piano is for me a way of getting unstuck, if I’m stuck in life or in what I’m writing. What it does is break the barrier that comes between the conscious and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind wants to take over and refuses to let the subconscious mind work, the intuition. So if I can play the piano, that will break the block, and my intuition will be free to give things up to my mind, my intellect.”

Madeleine L’Engle, American novelist (1918-2007)

(Painting “Plum Lovely” by Christine Keim Vandeberg)
