I want a creative temp!

I am going through Simple Abundance, a Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

The entry for Aug. 31 was very interesting (in reference to a creative dry spell):

"It is so difficult to come to a halt, especially when we want to get on with our careers, realationships, health, creativity. But when you're too parched to pray, beyond tears, or too drained to give a damn, it's time to cease and desist. Not all our hours are billable.
...Pretend that you're a creative temp, here to fill in until your authentic self arrives. In the meantime defer making any life altering creative decisions until you recieve your operating instructions.... In the natural world, droughts depart as suddenly and as mysteriously as they arrive. "

I love the idea a being a creative temp, once removed from our everyday world and even our art!
