Use the Good Paper

Creativity is a Destructive Act. There is an element of destruction with everything we create. And this can be the thing that holds us back, that stills our voice, that has us staring into space or scrubbing grout with a toothbrush.

Or renegotiated an agreement (even a marriage contract or a business deal) that wasn’t working… and later, you were glad? I think […]
