From Paul Graham’s lips

to your ears:

When I get stuck, I tell myself, ‘Relax. It’s everywhere and everything. It’s all around you, and you just have to let it speak to you.’ It’s not about having to cross the great American West, or the deserts of China. You don’t have to do that. It’s right in front of your face; all you have to do is relax and breathe it in. Having said that, I have travelled quite a bit.

  1. Susana, Good advice. It reminded me of this passage by Kafka, which I’ve always loved:

    Learn to be Quiet

    You need not do anything.
    Remain sitting at your table and listen.
    You need not even listen, just wait.
    You need not even wait,
    just learn to be quiet, still and solitary.
    And the world will freely offer itself to you unmasked.
    It has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
