MIndful, Day 172, Waiting for Clarity

You must give birth to your images.
They are the future waiting to be born...
fear not the strangeness you feel.
The future must enter into you long before it happens...
Just wait for the birth...
for the hour of new clarity.

Rainer Maria Rilke, 1875- 1926

I read this last week and have been thinking about it.  I know that there are times when working on art that it has to sit for awhile.  Not out of sight necessarily but it has to just BE for awhile and then one day the answer comes along or a new direction suggests itself. It has taken a long time to recognize when to wait and when to keep working.
