"I always forget how important the empty days are,
how important it may be sometimes
not to expect to produce anything,
even a few lines in a journal.
A day when one has not pushed oneself to the limit
seems a damaged damaging day, a sinful day.
The most valuable thing one can do for the psyche,
is to let it rest,
live in the changing light of a room."
(May Sarton, 1912-1995)
