WISDOM OF NO ESCAPE

I woke up at what felt like dawn (8:45 is freelancer dawn!) to talk to Feist on the phone, for an article, and she gave great quote, including this sage thought for the day:

Is struggle, having a roadblock of some sort, necessary for creating?

I think it is. Comfort is comfortable--there is no need to circumnavigate. Once you stretch your mind out to get around something, as it pulls apart, you see stuff in the cracks--things you wouldn't glimpse otherwise. After falling apart, when you are putting things back together, if one piece is in the wrong place, it's a new puzzle and it's worth puzzling over.
