This quote makes me laugh. I don't know which is better. Pigeons are free to fly, but common. A statue is a work of art, but stagnant in nature and get's pooped on by the common.
Life is like that. Sometimes we have the world by our fingertips. We sore on wings and it seems like nothing can stop us from flying into the great unknown.
At other times, we are stuck, stagnant, pooped on, unable to move one inch.
You will have both experiences many times in your life. Might as well understand that now and not fight the seasons. Anyone past the age of 20 knows this all too well!
Creating is like that too. Some times you will be full of new ideas and beauty. At other times you will stare blankly wondering if you've lost your ability to create magic. It will happen, just watch.
