Imagine if every restaurant was closed on the same day every week, and we were forced to have a true sit-down meal with our families. Maybe have a picnic. Watch the kids play. Maybe go down a few slides too. Play catch or tag or hide-and-go-seek. And then tumble into bed at the end of the day, feeling happy and content. Feeling truly alive.
Imagine if artists took the time to enjoy the art of others. A really good movie. A play. A comic. Sit down and read good books. And then wake up refreshed and ready to love your own work. A new outlook. A fresh perspective.
It's much like that day of rest. You gotta enjoy life in order to write about life effectively. You got to love to live in order to love your work.
Here's a quote from Mark Twain:
What's your favorite book / movie / TV show that motivates you?
