I've been going through photos from this year and found these from when Dan and I took a little end of the summer weekend away up to St. Josephs Michigan. I relaxed enough to get really inspired about a project in a way that I hadn't been in a while. A couple of hours away and a couple of days at a B and B on the beach. That's all it took. As we chatted over coffee and later beer I came up with the idea for my cat/pancake movie.
Then today I saw this TED talk about the value of sabbaticals and how they strengthen your work.
