Yes, John Gomez, the “end of downtime” has a plus and a minus for sure. It’s painful, sometimes, to be alone with our thoughts or in-between entertainment. We can make every excuse in the world for filling up that time with something more “productive” or “social” or whatever… but the truth is, withstanding the pain of it is what makes us creative. I’m glad to hear from people like you who’ve stayed true to the harder road and are simply deeper humans for it. Salut.
