Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his Eighth Symphony in a mere two months during the summer of 1943. He worked on it in an old henhouse on a former chicken farm. The location helped relax him, letting him work with extra intensity. Find a retreat like that sometime soon. You’d benefit from going off alone to a sanctuary and having nice long talks with your ancestors, the spirits of nature and your deepest self. If it’s not practical now, what’s the next best thing?
