With our garnered free time, we are more apt to drain our creative springs than to fill them. With our pitchers, we attempt sometimes to water a field, not a garden. We throw ourselves indiscriminately into committees and causes. Not knowing how to feed the spirit, we try to muffle its demands with distractions. Instead of stilling the center, the axis of the wheel, we add more centrifugal activities to our lives – which tend to throw us off balance. – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

This is just one quote from a beautiful little book on simplicity and creativity called Gift from the Sea. I picked it up in a bookshop in Denver, and have been feeding off it ever since.
