How to Re-enter the studio after a long break

I recently went to Bali for a month, upon return I headed back out my door to

teach a workshop in the Bay Area. I am now back- home for five weeks now and I am just starting to get my feelers back in the studio.

Leaving can be a challenge to any art practice. A friend of my recently gave me some priceless advice- she said she got it from a movie. I am paraphrasing but it goes something like this

Bob who isa temp in an office is slacking on his work, his boss say's to him one day, "Bob, I notice you have an artistic temperament- you need to fo back to your desk, settle down, focus and catch up". That simple- so that is what I am doing and surprise a finished painting came this week, one that I began after a shamanic journey I did last summer. The journey brought a wise guide to my sidewho handed me nine pearls to swallow. Why I ask? His response, "The sky is now falling, you need to anchor the light, now go paint".
