Juvenal’s advice: a healthy mind in a healthy body (Mens sana in corpore sano).
Art is an endurance sport. If either mind or body is not well, seek a sensible remedy.
A good worker takes care of his tools, and an artist’s tools are the mind and the body.
[This post is dedicated to the life and memory of Paul Squires of Gingatao, a great poet of the early 21st century.]

I better start looking after my body and mind then. Paul Squires is a great poet
Create; make stuff; make your own stuff; be yourself; prevail; don’t give up; just do it. No excuses. No regrets.
Thank you aletha. Somehow your tribute strikes just the right note/s. Oh to be fearless and free.
It’s the work that sets you (me) free.
I miss you Paul. You were the best of us.
I won’t feel guilty anymore when I leave my brushes uncleaned, mind you I work mainly in water medium, after a short creative session due to tight time managment.
Indeed, Patrice, I know Paul wanted people to be fearless and free. I read him saying something like that.
No guilt, Ben. Just work, and especially indulgent work, lavishly richly gloriously indulgence in work-play-work.
And Paul Squires was a great poet.
