Do you have a release valve?

You are familiar with the concept of an ear-worm? That tune you can’t get out of your head? This quote has plagued me like a brain-worm. I can’t think of a pithier description of the creative process.

“I write to equalize the pressure from without and from within.” ~ Vera Pavlova, poet.

Have a nice weekend and thank you for reading.

  1. Some (not to name names as he may be someone you know) seem to have their release valves running through the middle digit of the left hand (left hand, at least when driving, to allow easier visibility from outside). I suppose that is also a means to equalize pressure from without and from within. Never thought of it that way, nor as a creative process, but I will ponder the connection.

    BTW, can you give me the name of the installer of the valve inserted in the gentleman’s head?

I welcome your comments. Thanks for reading.
