Last week when I met Mary and Gabriella in Paris, we went to the Musée d’Orsay to see a Van Gogh/Artaud exhibition.

At one point french writer Antonin Artaud mentions this invisible wall, located between what we feel and what we can do.

And I thought “Yes, I know this wall, I know exactly what he’s talking about – I’m facing it all the time – when I paint, write – whenever I get creative, this invisible barrier between what I feel/ what I really Want to express and what I Can express.

Are you facing this wall as well sometimes?
What are you doing to get through it?
