You know that feeling when the light in your eyes fade as you stare down a scary space? It’s like walking down the street and suddenly cars and people swap places. A light that says ‘stop,’ locks the path, and halts everyone who thought they had it all figured out. A planner’s plan postponed, a handyman’s hands held on hold. An artist should know that feeling all too well. It’s back. It’s art block.
See, that obelisk may by be looming with such bullheadedness that you’ll want to turn back, and on some days fade into a corner to forget it all, but you know it doesn’t work like that. Even the moon of paths seems to mock you. Feel around, grab your heart. Reconnect the dots. How did this object of horror creep in your mind?
Think of ways to move the object in question. If you can brute force a solution, more power to you. Some methods may need to be more creative to tackle the wall without pain. One plan at a time. Chip the pieces. Explore the world around it with a fresh perspective. Make the barrier into something less opaque, like a fence. Some might even try to mock the fissure of nature with words or doodles. But don’t worry, everything’s fine.
No matter how abstract you can be with it, remember that it all comes back to you making a single line. Then another.
